Genin named Global Scholars Fellow at Tsinghua University


Guy Genin, PhD, has been named a 2014 Global Scholars Fellow at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

The award will allow Genin, a professor of mechanical engineering in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, to conduct research with Changqing Chen, PhD, professor of engineering and director of Tsinghua’s Institute for Solid Mechanics. The team will study how engineers can help older adults make decisions about orthopedic surgeries involving rotator cuff repair.

Genin and Stavros Thomopoulos, PhD, associate professor of orthopaedic surgery at Washington University School of Medicine, are studying this issue with a five-year, $3.1 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. Results of their research could lead to the engineering of new tissues that could enhance cuff repair.
