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!
