with the semester coming to an end i have been quite busy completing course projects as well as participating in conference activities. most recently i was notified by the american society of biomechanics that one of our abstracts was accepted as a poster presentation at the 34th annual meeting of the american society of biomechanics. this is a great step in success for this project and my career. ASB is one of the premier research societies in the world of movement sciences and says a lot concerning the importance of our research efforts so far.

also last week, in a hurry, i attended the 2nd annual delaware health science alliance research conference held at the christiana hospital in newark. the conference was a large one in respect to the state of delaware and also very important as the DHSA is one of UDs greater collaborative initiatives between mid-atlantic partners. after the DHSA conference i was notified that my poster was voted a 3rd place winner among the other posters. to me this is quite an honor as each primary investigator participant in the winning group were either PhD holders or doctoral candidates.

with the upcoming data colleciton dates scheduled this summer in europe i am quite excited to see the result, especially when our primary efforts are to get a good look from the IOC and WTF.
