U of M Biomedical Student Brings Home the Best Paper Award at an International Conference
Brooke Sanford was awarded the Springer Best Paper Award at the 16th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention
(MICCAI) in the Computational Biomechanics for Medicine Workshop VIII in Nagoya, Japan
on September 22-26, 2013 for her paper "Hip, Knee and Ankle Joint Forces in Healthy
Weight, Overweight and Obese Individuals During Walking," authored by Brooke A. Sanford,
John L. Williams, Audrey R. Zucker-Levin, and William M. Mihalko. Brooke was unable
to attend the conference, so Dr. John Williams presented it on her behalf.
Organized with the Scientific Council of Japan, MICCAI attracts world leading scientists,
engineers and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical
imaging and computer assisted surgery.
Brooke received a Bachelor's of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt
University in 2006, Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering in 2008 from University
of Memphis, and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from University of Memphis in May 2013.
Brooke is currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Biomedical Engineering
department in the Herff College of Engineering at the University of Memphis.
