Third-year BME Ph.D. student, Aubrey Gray, has received one of only four highly competitive 2023 Grant-in-Aid Research awards from the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB). The award will support her research project titled “Foot stiffness as a potentially modifiable factor to improve resilience to walking balance challenges in older adults,” which she will complete in the Applied Biomechanics Laboratory directed by BME Associate Professor Dr. Jason Franz.
The American Society of Biomechanics was founded in 1977 to encourage and foster the exchange of information and ideas among biomechanists working in different disciplines and to facilitate the development of biomechanics as a basic and applied science. The society has a membership of approximately 850 academic researchers, clinicians, scientists, students and industry members working to solve basic and applied problems in the realm of biomechanics and to improve understanding of the workings of biological systems.
