The UCSF/SFSU Graduate Program in Physical Therapy is pleased to invite the family and friends of the entering Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2022 to the eighth annual White Coat Ceremony! The event will be held on Friday, September 27, 2019 at 6pm in Cole Hall, located in the Medical Sciences Building on the UCSF Parnassus campus.
Alyssa Bird, 2nd year PhD student in Rehabilitation Science (specialization: Musculoskeletal Biomechanics) has been awarded the Julius R. and Patricia A. Krevans Fellowship from the UCSF Graduate Division. This competitive fellowship rewards excellence in research. Candidates are evaluated for prior academic achievements and potential for future contributions to the health science field. The Fellowship includes a $10,000 stipend.
Dr. Victor Cheuy’s UCSF RAP proposal, entitled “A Musculoskeletal and Biomechanical Analysis of Diabetic, Neuropathic Foot Deformity,” will be funded by the Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI)-Pilot Awards Program! Dr. Cheuy’s research proposal combines MRI, CT, and motion capture techniques to better understand the interaction of muscle and bone in the foot, in an effort to prevent neuropathic ulcers and lower extremity amputations in patients with diabetes and neuropathy. Congratulations Dr. Cheuy!
Dr. Susanna Rosi’s NASA proposal entitled, “Probing the synergistic effects of radiation, altered gravity and stress on behavioral cognitive and sensorimotor functions to predict performance decrement in astronauts” has recently been approved! Dr. Rosi’s research proposal is one of 12 selected from across the Nation to investigate astronaut health and performance during future long-duration missions beyond low-Earth orbit. The data collected from these 12 selected projects will assist in NASA’s long-term plan in exploring the Moon and Mars. Congratulations Dr. Rosi!
