Trevor Lujan poses with John Everingham at the WBC

ME graduate John Everingham won first place in the Masters Level competition at the 2018 World Biomechanics Congress (July 8-12, 2018) in Dublin, Ireland. Everingham, who received his Masters last December, presented “A Novel Bioreactor that Applies Dynamic Distortion to 3D Cellular Constructs,” a novel device that applies mechanical stimulation to live engineered tissue. The device will be used for future studies to understand mechanisms of growth and healing in musculoskeletal tissues.
