Congrats to Mikhail Golman, Jared Zitnay, and Allen Lin for placing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for the PhD Student Paper Competition at the SB3C (https://sb3c.org/)!! They all used F-CHPs to perform their work, we are excited to see the new applications of CHPs for biomechanics! Their abstract titles are listed below.
1st Place: Mikhail Golman, Columbia University (Senior Author: Stravos Thomopoulos) “Failure Mechanisms In The Tendon Enthesis Under Quasistatic, Cyclical, And Pathological Loading”
2nd Place: Jared Zitnay, University of Utah (Senior Author: Jeffrey Weiss) “Collagen Fatigue Damage Evolves with Creep Strain and is Strain Rate Dependent”
3rd Place (tie): Allen Lin, University of Utah (Senior Author: Jeffrey Weiss) “Collagen Denaturation Occurs Upon Tissue Failure In Energy Storing Tendons”
