BME graduate student Stephanie Cone has been selected as a recipient of the 2018 Horizon Award by the UNC Graduate School. The award recognizes outstanding graduate student research that holds extremely high potential for making a significant contribution to the educational, economic, physical, social or cultural well-being of North Carolina citizens and beyond. The Horizon/Impact Awards Selection Committee, comprised of faculty from across the UNC campus, chose Stephanie’s project, “Understanding How Pediatric ACL Injuries Are Different, Toward Better Treatment” due to its exceptional quality and impact. Stephanie was honored at the Graduate Student Recognition Celebration in April 2018, where she had the opportunity to present her work to the campus community and visiting state legislators.

Fantastic job, Stephanie, and congratulations!
