Steele Lab Presents at the Northwest Biomechanics Symposium (NWBS)

The Steele Lab had a great time presenting their research at the Northwest Biomechanics Symposium on May 4-5th, 2018 in Bellingham, WA. Ben Shuman, Brianna Goodwin, Claire Mitchell, and Keshia Peters all gave podium presentations during the conference, and Madelyn Lew, Leif Wesche, Alyssa Spomer, Michael Rosenberg, and Karley Benoff gave poster presentations.

A big congratulations to Alyssa Spomer and Karley Benoff for being awarded best graduate and undergraduate student posters, respectively, for the entire conference.

The Northwest Biomechanics Symposium is a student-friendly conference and incorporates research labs from all of the Northwest, including Canada. Irene Davis, a professor at the Harvard Medical School and Director of the Spaulding National Running Center, provided a great Keynote address to the conference attendees.
