We are very proud to congratulate Billy Clark for successfully defending his PhD dissertation, titled “Interaction between triceps surae muscles and the Achilles tendon in young and older adults: mechanisms and functional consequences”. Outstanding job! We also thank the wonderful support of his committee members, Drs. Xiaogang Hu (UNC/NCSU BME), Mike Lewek (UNC PT), Kate Saul (NCSU MAE), and Eric Ryan (UNC EXSS). Billy will be starting a position as a post-doc in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Browne University working under the mentorship of Dr. Tom Roberts. Big things ahead!!
