RECIPIENT OF A TRAVEL GRANT TO TRAVEL TO THE MUSCULOSKELETAL RESEARCH CENTER, UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH
It was my honor to receive a travel grant from ASIAM Institute to come back to the MSRC. I was glad to work on a project to develop a novel, bioresorbable device for mechanical augmentation of an injured ACL, to be used alongside biological augmentation for a synergistic approach to ACL healing. In general, I had the occasion to share my surgical experience with Dr. Chris Chiang
, Dr. Katie Farraro
and Mrs. Jonquil Mau
. It was an opportunity to improve my surgical skills as well as learn about the importance of animal studies for clinical practice.
After I returned back to the University of Sacred Heart in Rome (directed by Professor Giuliano Cerulli)
, I shared my wonderful experience in Pittsburgh with my colleagues, during our Monday meeting.
I thank Dr. and Mrs. Woo
for their guidance and hospitality and the ASIAM Institute Board of Directors for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
