The Kappa¬†Delta Sorority, along with the Orthopaedic Research and Education¬†Foundation, have honored 2004 BME graduate Dr. Robin Queen with this year’s Young Investigator Award. The KD/OREF awards are given to musculoskeletal researchers who focus on advancing patient treatment and care for related diseases or injuries. Dr. Queen, now Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Tech University, was chosen for her outstanding work on the impact of ankle osteoarthritis on balance and gait mechanics. Kappa Delta established the first ever award to honor achievements in orthopaedic research in 1947, a tradition that has carried on to include four total awards. Congratulations, Robin!
