Summer Highlights from OML
At the annual American Society of Biomechanics conference, held in Boulder, Colorado August 8-11, Dr. Jacque Cole was awarded the Junior Faculty Research Award (JFRA). The JFRA is a grant that can be used to generate pilot data and support early-career investigators. There were nine applications this year that were reviewed based on the significance of the problem, the scientific approach, and the impact of the project on the candidate’s research program. Jacque’s award application is titled “Changes in the Osteovascular Niche Following Ischemic Stroke in Mice.”
Carly Britt, Michael Ashburn, and Sophie Tushak were awarded NC State Undergraduate Research Grants from the Office of Undergraduate Research for 2017-2018.
Recent BS graduate and OML Alum Harsha Pinnamaraju won the Flexcell Entrepreneurship Award for excellence in engineering and entrepreneurship from BME. Congrats!
