Ryan Scott Wins Student Research Competition

Young Scientist Ryan T. Scott, working with with Joshua S. Alwood in the Bone and Signaling Lab, recently was selected as a winner of the 2017 San José State University Student Research Competition. Having completed his Masters last year, the next step is one more oral and one more poster presentation at the statewide CSU Student Research Competition in late April, at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. The research was conducted at NASA Ames Research Center, and is entitled, “Zoledronate Prevents Simulated Weightlessness-Induced Bone Loss In The Cancellous Compartment While Blunting The Efficacy Of A Mechanical Loading Countermeasure.” A component of the research was Ryan’s Masters Thesis, which separately has been nominated as SJSU’s ‘Outstanding Thesis’ for 2017.
