Scripps Clinic researcher Darryl D’Lima, MD, PhD, received the Nicolas Andry Award from The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons in June for his orthopedic research using the electronic knee prosthesis known as the e-knee.
D’Lima directs the research laboratories at the Shiley Center for Orthopaedic Research and Education (SCORE), part of Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA. He is also an assistant professor in the Division of Arthritis Research at The Scripps Research Institute and an associate professor at the Scripps Translational Science Institute, and holds the Clifford W. Colwell Jr., MD, Chair in Orthopaedic Research.
D’Lima received the award for a manuscript reviewing his 15 years of work with the e-knee, which will be published in the July 2011 print edition of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research. SCORE researchers will use the $15,000 grant for ongoing research on the e-knee and development of the next generation of the device.
