Congrats 2017 Graduates!


The BBL had a very productive trip to San Diego for the 2017 Orthopaedic Research Society meeting. Jenny and Sam shared their work in the poster sessions while Rachel gave her first presentation. All were successful and generated great conversation with fellow researchers in the field.

We also had time to catch up with some alumni, including a lovely dinner with Dr. Lucas Lu.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Congrats to Tezita on her new job!

The BBL wishes Tezita Watts huge success in her new position. She has started as a Patent Examiner/Mechanical Engineer at the Department of Commerce - US Patent and Trademark Office. She will be reviewing the patentability of biomedical devices specific to surgical applications.

Tezita worked with the BBL while she completed her Masters at Columbia. She has been an invaluable member of our team for the last year and a half and will be greatly missed.

Happy Holidays from the BBL!

BBL earns multiple poster and presentation spots at 2017 ORS

Congratulations to BBL members who have earned several poster and presentations spots at the annual Orthopaedic Research Society 2017 meeting to be held in March in San Diego. We are excited to present work done over the last year by both our clinical mechanics and mechanobiology groups, including work performed with our excellent 2016 summer interns. Below is a list of all abstracts accepted.

Paper Presentation in a Bone Mechanobiology Spotlight Session:
Downregulation Of Sclerostin In Response To Load Is Independent Of Ca2+-Mediated Mechanosensation

Congratulations Dr. Eric Yu!

On September 30th Eric Yu successfully defended his thesis: Contributions of anisotropic and heterogeneous tissue modulus to apparent trabecular bone mechanical properties.

We are very proud and impressed by him. He will be greatly missed when he parts the BBL, but luck for us, we have a little more time with Dr. Yu as he stays on to finish up some final parts of his projects.

Annual BBL Summer Outing

This year's end of summer celebration was extra competitive and delicious. Current BBL members, those from the recent past, and BBL friends gathered first for several intense rounds of Laser tag, arcade games, and mini bowling. Some of us discovered hidden talents, others, not so much.

After exhausting our competitive spirit, we all headed to Ed and Carol's home for relaxing and BBQ including steaks cooked by Ed to perfection. Professor Guo has his steak protocol optimized for sure!

Taken all together, it was a fabulous way to close out the summer.

Congratulations Dr. Genevieve Brown!

On August 30th, Genevieve Brown successfully defended her thesis titled "The Sustainment and Consequences of Cytosolic Calcium Signals in Osteocytes". Dr. Brown and her work have been integral to the success of the BBL over the last 6 years. She will be greatly missed, though we are all very excited for her as she embarks on her new career.
