Recognizing a pioneer in engineering

Dr. Bill Carson is a pioneer in engineering – actually helping to create what is now termed “biomedical engineering” by partnering with surgeons in human and veterinary orthopaedics to find solutions to the “mechanical” problems of bones and joints by applying the art and science of engineering.

Dr. Carson has lead efforts resulting in numerous innovations in orthopaedics, including treatment of spinal deformities for which he was recognized in the 50th Annual Meeting of the Scoliosis Research Society’s walking timeline of landmark work in this area.

Dr. Carson and his wife Toni have also been instrumental in the development and progress of the COL, and our Biomechanics and Bioengineering Laboratory is named in their honor.
