2016 Journal of Biomechanics Award Presented to BME Graduate Dr. Ben Robertson
September 19, 2016 - Ben Robertson, Ph.D., a former doctoral student working with Dr. Greg Sawicki in the Human PoWeR Lab and now a postdoctoral fellow at Temple University, won the 2016 Journal of Biomechanics Award given by the American Society of Biomechanics for his work conducted at NCSU entitled "An in vitro approach for directly observing muscle-tendon dynamics with parallel elastic mechanical assistance." This award recognizes substantive and conceptually novel mechanics approaches explaining how biological systems function. The awardee is selected by a committee from all submitted abstracts for the 2016 ASB Annual Meeting. It is sponsored by Elsevier Science, Ltd., publishers of the Journal of Biomechanics and comes with an award check and spot to highlight the work as a full article published in the Journal of Biomechanics.
