Congratulations to Mary Bouxsein, and colleague Tony Keaveny from UC Berkeley, for winning the 2015 Lodwick Award from the MGH Department of Radiology! This award recognizes “the world’s greatest contribution to the musculoskeletal radiology literature” in the previous year, and comes with a special bowtie.
Congratulations to Lamya Karim on the publication of her recent manuscripts in Bone! The first manuscript compares cyclic and impact-based reference point indentation measurements in human cadaveric tibia. The second manuscriptdescribes the effect of type 2 diabetes-related non-enzymatic glycation on bone biomechanical properties.
Congratulations to Jack Meng and co-authors on the publication of their manuscript in the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering! The manuscript describes a novel method to incorporate realistic intervertebral stiffnesses in a musculoskeletal model of the lumbar spine. Here is a link to the paper.
A warm welcome to our 2015 summer lab interns: Tessabella Magliochetti, Greg Dadourian, Caroline DiNapoli, Andrea Saucedo, and Olivia Larkin!
Congratulations to Dr. Dennis Anderson for his promotion to Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School!
Congratulations to Jordan Spatz for successfully defending his PhD thesis in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Program! Jordan is moving to California to attend medical school at UCSF School of Medicine!
Congratulations to Katelyn Burkhart on passing her PhD qualifying exam in the MIT-Health Sciences and Technology Bioastronautics Program!
Congratulations to Alex Bruno for successfully defending his PhD thesis in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Program! Alex is moving to Philadelphia to start his new career at Exponent!
Congratulations to the spine modeling team on the publication of their manuscript in the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering! The manuscript describes a new OpenSim model of the full thoracolumbar spine and rib cage. Here is a link to the paper.
Congratulations to Mary Bouxsein on becoming an AIMBE Fellow!
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to participate in NIH-funded research related to musculoskeletal modeling & spine biomechanics. Please see the opportunites page for more details.
