ISB Award Winners

Posted on September 27, 2013

Emerging Scientist Award:  Geoffrey Power

Field of electromyography and motor control

Sponsored by Prof Carlo DeLuca and is a monetary award of $2500

Geoffrey is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the human performance laboratory at the University of Calgary after completing his undergraduate studies at the Memorial university of Newfoundland and PhD at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. The two papers that Geoffrey submitted as part of the application for the award were:

Clinical Biomechanics Award:  Sorin Siegler

Sponsored by Journal of Clinical Biomechanics, Elsevier Science, and has a monetary award of $1250

Sorin is currently at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University, USA. His abstract for this conference, on the new observations on the morphology of the talar dome and its relationship to ankle kinematics, was judged by the local scientific organising committee and subsequently by the ISB awards panel after submitting a full paper:

Four submission were finally judged in this category and we would also like to acknowledge the runner ups who had outstanding papers:

  • Carolyn Albert for material properties of brittle bones
  • Quesada Tan for evaluation of lower limb cross planar kinetic connectivity signatures post stroke and...
  • Alexander Tsouknidas for the effect of kyphoplasy on the load transfer within the lumbar spine considering the biomechanical response of a bio realistic spine segment.

 

Promising Scientist Award 2011:  Antoine Nordez

Sponsored by Motion Analysis and has a monetary award of $5000

This award was judged and awarded at the last ISB congress in Brussels in 2011

Currently assistant professor at the university of Nantes where he has had several positions as a student, researcher and lecturer since 2000. At the time of the award being judged, Antoine had 27 publications in the field of Biomechanics and the number has grown significantly since that time. The two papers that he was required to identify for the award award were both published in the Journal of Applied Physiology:

 

The ISB council decided at the Brussels meeting that the future winners of the Promising Scientist Award would present an overview of their work the same year as being awarded the prize.

 

Promising Scientist Award 2013:  Hiroaki Hobara

Sponsored by Motion Analysis and is a monetary award of $5000

Hiroaki is currently a research scientist at the national institute of advanced industrial science and technology. He completely his bachelors degree at Juntendo university before continuing a masters and Phd at Wasada university in 2008. At the time of the award being judged, Hiroaki had 20 publications in the field of Biomechanics. The two papers that he was required to identify for the award award were published in the Journal of Biomechanics and Prosthetics and Orthotics International.
