A Visit from REDDI Alumni

Two REDDI alumni came to visit the lab this morning. Audrey and Peter, both participants in our first internship session in 2012, shared what they have been doing since their time with The Taylor Collaboration.

Audrey came to Taylor as an intern in the summer of 2012, then interned at Stryker in New Jersey, before finishing her degree at UC Berkeley. With degree in hand she joined the lab as a research engineer and eventually took over as operations manager. She is currently at Dartmouth College pursuing her PhD in mechanical engineering. She credits her time as an intern with helping her to get into the habit of writing papers and abstracts, as well as offering invaluable hands on experience in the machine shop.

Peter graduated from the California Maritime Academy and became our operations manager after participating in the REDDI internship.  He set up our chiller system, built the OR wet lab lights, as well as countless other repairs and maintenance projects.  After Taylor, Peter accepted a job as an environmental compliance inspector with Vacaville, his hometown. Peter feels his time at Taylor gave him an opportunity to further develop his project management and organization skills, which are crucial in his current role.

Journal Club – Tibial Fractures

Sasha hosted our first Journal Club meeting of the summer. The topic this time around was the different treatments for a tibia shaft fracture. Treatment methods include intramedullary nailing and Ilizarov ring fixation. The discussions covered treatment outcomes, common complications and a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of both treatment methods.

Did you know many tibial fractures are treated by inserting a long nail at the knee inside of the tibia?Image-1

Welcome to Our REDDI Interns

Kelly, Manuela and Leo are joining The Taylor Collaboration for the summer as our 2015 REDDI interns. They are embarking on a three month program that will allow them to develop their engineering and research skills in the field of orthopedics.

Manuela is a recent graduate of the University of Delaware, with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Kelly is a recent Stanford graduate with a B.S. in Biomechanical Engineering. Leo will be heading into his senior year as a Mechanical Engineering major at UC Berkeley in the fall.

Saying Goodbye to a Team Member

A bitter-sweet moment for us; saying goodbye to Mark, our publications coordinator. Mark was a part of the team for almost three years, playing a valuable role in the submission of our work to various journals, as well as prepping for conferences. We wish him the best of luck on his new adventures.Mark-Redo
