Recent BME Graduate Alum Stephanie Cone was one of twenty Rising Stars selected from a pool of 160+ global applicants to present at the inaugural Engineering in Health virtual workshop hosted by Columbia University on December 18, 2020. Dr. Cone is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the University of Wisconsin Neuromuscular Biomechanics Lab researching non-invasive techniques for characterizing tendon function during dynamic tasks. She completed her PhD in 2019 with Associate Professor Matthew Fisher in the Translational Orthopaedics Research Lab, where she studied structural and functional changes in the knee during growth.
At Columbia University, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (FF SEAS) and the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) were pleased to present this inaugural Rising Stars Workshop at the intersection of engineering and health science, with the aim of educating the next generation of scientists.
