Penn researcher, Louis J. Soslowsky, PhD, winner of the AAOS Kappa Delta Ann Doner Vaughan Award
Date:3/10/2010

Philadelphia, PA Louis J. Soslowsky, Ph.D. Fairhill professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and professor of Bioengineering, director of the McKay Orthopaedic Research Laboratory and Penn Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, was named the 2010 winner of the Ann Doner Vaughan Kappa Delta Award by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Soslowsky presented his award-winning paper, "Understanding the Etiology, Pathogenesis, and Repair Response of Rotator Cuff Injuries: A Series of Interconnected Studies Developing and Using an Animal Model," Tuesday, March 9th at the 56th annual meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society in New Orleans. The Kappa Delta Ann Doner Vaughan Award will officially be presented the following afternoon at the opening ceremony of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting.

In Soslowsky's paper he presents his series of studies using a rat model that he identified, which demonstrates the impact of extrinsic and overuse factors on rotator cuff injuries of the shoulder and the importance of post-surgical activity levels in the healing response. Soslowsky's research has clinical applications which may directly translate into the treatment of rotator cuff injuries in humans. Based on his team's data to date, they and other researchers are now able to investigate true mechanisms of injury and healing at the molecular, cellular, and tissue level in this current rat model and other animal model series. "Dr. Soslowsky's career commitment to excellence in musculoskeletal research has been recognized at the highest level with this award," said L. Scott Levin, MD, FACS, chair of Orthopaedic Surgery at Penn Medicine. "This honor is well earned and well deserved."

According to Soslowsky, "the great apes may be man's closes animal relative, but it's the rat that may teach us the most about rotator cuff disease," the most common cause of shoulder pain a
