At the annual American Society of Biomechanics conference, held in Boulder, Colorado August 8-11, Jacque was given the Junior Faculty Research Award. The JFRA is a grant that can be used to generate pilot data and support early-career investigators. There were nine applications this year that were each reviewed based on the significance of the problem, the scientific approach, and the impact of the project on the candidate’s research program.
Jacque’s award application is titled “Changes in the Osteovascular Niche Following Ischemic Stroke in Mice.”
