Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Professor David Corr receives NSF CAREER award
Date:5/13/2010

cle-tendon structures, in which both the muscle and tendon fiber architecture dictate the physiological and biomechanical function of the structure.

This research program will be complemented by integrated educational projects at the graduate, undergraduate, and K-12 academic levels. Corr's CAREER award will support his educational outreach in biomedical engineering to Design Your Future Day, an annual day-long event at Rensselaer with interactive lab sessions and presentations to encourage girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. Additionally, Corr will introduce a new biomaterials program for the week-long American Society of Materials "Materials Day Camp" summer program, hosted at Rensselaer for local and regional high school students.

The CAREER Award is given to faculty members at the beginning of their academic careers and is one of NSF's most competitive awards, placing emphasis on high-quality research and novel education initiatives.

Corr joined the Rensselaer faculty in 2006, following his time as an Alberta Ingenuity Fund post-doctoral fellow and the Ernst & Young Fellow in Joint Injury and Arthritis Research at the McCaig Centre at the University of Calgary. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering mechanics and astronautics from the University of Wisconsin. He went on to earn his master's degree in biomedical engineering and doctorate in mechanical engineering, also from the University of Wisconsin.
