Fung Early Career Award “for leadership in musculoskeletal bioengineering and translational mechanobiology to improve human health.” Formal presentation of the award will take place during the 2020 ASME Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering and Biotransport Conference on June 17-30, 2020 in Vail, Colorado.
A not-for-profit membership organization across all engineering disciplines, ASME recognizes the outstanding achievements in mechanical and multidisciplinary engineering through its honors and awards program. The early career award was established in 1986 to recognize young investigators who are committed to pursuing research in the field of Bioengineering and have demonstrated significant potential to make substantial contributions to the field. Many congratulations to Dr. Fisher for receiving this prestigious honor!
