Congratulations to Beth Lemmon, a rising senior in our group, on receiving one of the prestigious spots as a 2017 Delaware INBRE Summer Scholar! Beth will spend this summer continuing work on her independent project studying the healing response of partial width tendon-bone defects in the rat rotator cuff.
Dr Killian has been selected as a scholar for the Interdisciplinary Rehabilitation Engineering Career Development Program (IREK12) in Movement and Rehabilitation Sciences, which operates out of Northwestern University. Killian’s research will focus on rotator cuff tears, a common orthopedic problem that leads to shoulder pain, dysfunction and degeneration.
