American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) establishes
goel award

 The ASB established the Goel award this past August. This award recognizes outstanding accomplishments in the translational biomechanics research, entrepreneurship, and societal benefit. This award is named after Dr. Vijay Goel, the ASB Borelli Award winner in 2014 and will be given annually to an ASB member. Recipients of the award will receive $1,000 and an engraved plaque. This award is open to all ASB members excluding officers and committees members.

2014 ASB Journal of Biomechanics Award
Congratulations to the knee research group!
The following submission has been selected to receive the ASB Journal of Biomechanics Award presented by the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) at the 2014 World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB) which will be held July 6th-11th at Boston, MA: "Uni-directional Coupling between Tibiofemoral Frontal and Transverse Plane Rotation Supports Valgus Collapse Mechanism of ACL Injury" This award, sponsored by Elsevier Science, Ltd., publishers of the Journal of Biomechanics, recognizes substantive and conceptually novel mechanics approaches explaining how biological systems function. The awardee is expected to publish their award winning work in the Journal of Biomechanics. This work is based on the ongoing NIH-funded grant and was done at the University of Toledo* in collaboration with researchers at the Ohio State University**  *Kiapour AM, Kiapour A, Goel VK, Demetropoulos CK. ** Quatman CE, Wordeman SC, Hewett TE

2014 Borelli Award
Congratulations to Dr. Vijay Goel for winning the 2014 Borelli Award! The Borelli Award is the most prestigious honor given by the ASB (American Society of Biomechanics). It recognizes outstanding career accomplishment and is awarded annually to an investigator who has conducted exemplary research in any area of biomechanics. The award is named after Giovanni Alfonso Borelli (1608-1679), a mid-17th century Professor of Mathematics from Naples, Italy, who is considered to be the father of modern biomechanics. Dr. Goel will receive his award at The 38th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) in Boston, Massachusetts, July 6-11, 2014. For additional details, please visit

2013 Ohio Third Frontier Technology Validation and Start Up Fund Awards
Under the directorship of Dr. Vijay Goel, The University of Toledo E-CORE has been awarded $2,355,319 from the 2013 Ohio Third Frontier Innovation Platform Program. A cash match of an equal amount will come from Industry and University. In collaboration with X Spine, Metro Medical Innovations and Turning Point, the project will develop improved spinal implants and exercise machines for rehabilitation needed after spinal injuries. In addition, The University of Toledo E-CORE has been awarded $25,000 for its project that will develop a micro processing chip to detect infection, initially targeting bone-tissue cases (Anand K. Agarwal, M.D. and Dong Shik Kim, Ph.D.). A cash match of an equal amount will come from the University of Toledo.
