Lou Soslowsky, Fairhill Professor and director of orthopaedic research in the Perelman School, was awarded the H. R. Lissner Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). The H.R. Lissner Medal is a society level award that recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of bioengineering, and is the single highest honor that one can achieve in the bioengineering community. The inscription on his Lissner Medal will read: “for outstanding contributions toward the understanding, prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries to tendinous and ligamentous tissues; and for internationally recognized leadership in the biomechanics community”. Dr. Soslowsky will give a plenary lecture and receive the award at the World Congress of Biomechanics in Dublin, Ireland, this coming summer.
