Hafiz Rahman and Woowon Lee (TBL collaborator) presented posters at this years Orthopedic Research Society. We had a great time, learned a lot, and 4 generations of scientists came together in San Diego.
Prof. Kersh and colleagues were invited to publish a review of current practices for strengthening fracture prone regions of bone. Read the the article here.
Check out the great article on Lydia here!
Welcome MS candidate, John Shanley, to the TBL! John joined this Fall 2016 and is working on developing an experiment to simulate rotator cuff injury mechanisms.
Prof. Kersh and MS candidate, Lydia Bakalova, attended ASBMR 2016 in Atlanta in September. Lydia co-presented a poster with our Danish collaborators, Thomas Andersen and Christina Andreasen. We enjoyed a few hours in the aquarium and spending non-Skype time with our research friends!
Our lab was featured in a recent article on our biomechanics outreach efforts. Way to go TBLers for inspiring the next generation!!
Prof. Kersh and Hafiz Rahman attended the Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering, and Biotransport conference in Maryland this June. Congratulations on your poster Hafiz!
TBL PhD student, Hajar Sharif, has completed and passed her written qualifying exam! Hajar is investigating the sensitivity of wrist biomechanics to fracture reduction and misalignment. Congratulations Hajar!!
TBL graduate student, Hajar Sharif, presented recent results from her work on wrist biomechanics at the Midwest Experimental Mechanics Student Conference.
Great job Hajar!!
TBL collaborators Maria Fox and Prof. John Polk, of the Department of Anthropology, presented preliminary results at the American Association of Physical Anthropologists annual meeting. We evaluated subchondral and trabecular bone in micro-CT scans of gorillas, chimpanzees and humans to better identify the relationship between bone morphology and posture.
