Assistant professor named Rising Star in Biomedical Engineering Society


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Spencer Szczesny, Penn State assistant professor of biomedical engineering, was awarded the 2022 CMBE Rising Star Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society’s Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering Special Interest Group. The award annually honors “a select group of exceptional junior principal investigators” whose areas of expertise fall in the interest group’s research focus, according to the CMBE website. Applicants submitted a research proposal, which was scored based on the proposal’s significance, innovation, technical content, writing style and figure presentation. Szczesny was chosen based on his research proposal, “Collagen Fibril Elongation via Mechanical Stimulation is Necessary for the Maturation of Embryonic Tendons into a Robust Tensile Load-Bearing Tissue.” Szczesny presented his research at the CMBE conference on January 4 in Indian Wells, California.
