This October, HAL members Ria Rao, Avery Kratzer, Fang-Yu Syu and Zoe Perkins attended the Center for Multiscale and Translational Mechanobiology symposium at Boston University. Ria and Avery presented their poster about the effect of ankle pushoff on frontal plane kinematics. Fang-Yu and Zoe presented their poster on strategies for increasing gait speed in females with hip pain. Congratulations to everyone who presented!
HAL member Lauren Sara is excited to participate in two career development opportunities: PERC, which is offered through the Boston University CTSI, and COMPASS, a national program offered by WashU in St. Louis. Both will prove valuable in moving her toward an independent research career. Congrats Lauren!
Last week HAL members Ria Rao, Avery Kratzer, Fang-Yu Syu and Zoe Perkins attended the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics in Knoxville, TN! Ria gave a podium presentation about the effect of walking speed on hip moments in individuals with and without hip pain. Avery gave a podium presentation about the effect of ankle pushoff on frontal plane hip mechanics. Fang-Yu and Zoe presented their poster on strategies for increasing gait speed in females with hip pain. Congratulations to everyone who presented, and additional congratulations to Ria for receiving the ASB Student Travel Award to attend the conference!
Happy (belated) biomechanics day! The Human Adaptation Lab hosted winners of the Mass STEM Hub Student Industry Connects competition and their high school biomedical sciences class for a day of motion capture, forces, and fun. Thanks to BU's Movement & Applied Imaging Lab for joining in and BU GWISE for their support. A huge thank you and congratulations to our very own Avery Kratzer for organizing and leading this event!
Congratulations to Ria Rao who was recently selected as a Trainee Spotlight by Boston University's Center for Multiscale & Translational Mechanobiology (CMTM)! Check out the spotlight here!
