Jordyn Schroeder and Greg Sawicki Receive NIH R01 Research Supplement!

Congratulations to 4th year PhD student Jordyn Schroeder and PI Greg Sawicki for their funded NIH R01 Research Supplement to their parent grant, “Dynamic imaging to guide wearable robotic intervention for enhanced mobility in aging!” This funding will support Jordyn’s research and conference travel for the next 2 years of her graduate studies. Jordyn’s specific project will be a comprehensive assessment of age-related changes in plantar flexor muscle-tendon structure and function. The data she collects will enable formal links between a user’s ankle structural properties and their exoskeleton, and accelerate translation of this technology out of the lab for daily use to increase mobility for our aging population.
