Congratulations to our Ph.D. student, Mousa Younesi, who was selected to receive an Acta Student Award for his primary contribution to the manuscript, "Heparinized collagen sutures for sustained delivery of PDGF-BB: Delivery profile and effects on tendon derived cell In-Vitro", Acta BioMaterialia

The field of nominees was very impressive, and the task of selecting winners was challenging.  Not only did his paper demonstrate exceptional value to the biomaterials community, but his personal credentials and recommendations were also exemplary.

This award came with a prize of $2,000 and will be presented at the MS&T 2017 Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on October 9, 2017, during the ASM Leadership Luncheon.
