OCTOBER 1, 2004 -- Assistant Professor Seth Donahue (Biomedical Engineering) was honored with the American Society of Biomechanics Postdoctoral Young Scientist Award for his work with black bear cortical bone, “Bone Strength Is Not Compromised With Aging In Black Bears (Ursus americanus) Despite Annual Periods of Disuse (Hibernation).”

Donahue studies the black bear as a model for understanding osteoporosis by analyzing bone metabolism markers and hormones in wild and captive bears during hibernation as well as active periods.

His work has received international media coverage and has been recently supported by the National Institutes of Health.

The award consists of an engraved plaque and a check for $500. The award was one of two presented at the American Society of Biomechanics 28th Annual Conference in Portland, Ore., on Sept. 9.
