Carolyn has been selected as one of two winners of the 2019 Kappa Delta/ORS Travel Awards.
Her abstract is entitled, “Differential Gene Expression Reveals Spatially-Distinct
Biological Responses to Mechanical Load in Murine Tibiae”. The other winner is Susumu
Wada for the abstract entitled “Muscle-Derived Activated Endothelial Cells Improve Tendon-To-Bone
Healing in a Murine Model of Rotator Cuff Repair: Comprehensive Gene Expression Analysis using
RNA Sequencing”. Awards were selected from eight submissions that covered a wide range of orthopaedic research at Cornell, from both the Weill and the Ithaca campuses.
The award is made possible with funds from the 2010 Kappa Delta Elizabeth Lanier Award to Dr. Cornelia Farnum. Dr. Farnum, James Law Professor of Anatomy, emerita at the College of Veterinary Medicine, established the award in 2010 to promote orthopaedic research at Cornell. The award provides up to $1,500 in travel expenses for a trainee who will be presenting research at the annual meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society.
Congrats to both Carolyn and Susuma! Enjoy the ORS meeting in Austin.
