Dear Colleagues,


As the Editor-in-Chief of Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics (MCB), I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2021 Yuan-Cheng Fung Best Paper Award.


The award has been granted to one research article:


Paper Title: The Differences in Lower Extremity Joints Energy Dissipation Strategy during Landing between Athletes with Symptomatic Patellar Tendinopathy (PT) and without Patellar Tendinopathy (UPT)


By Datao Xu, Zhenghui Lu, Siqin Shen, Gusztáv Fekete, Ukadike C. Ugbolue, and Yaodong Gu





Dr.Gu is a Professor of Biomechanics. His main research work is focused on the musculoskeletal biomechanics and footwear design. His team have lots expertise developing of Human/Animal biomechanical models of the musculoskeletal system to study joint and muscle forces and the loading of different tissues during various movements, pathological conditions and sports activities.


On behalf of the Assessment Committee, I congratulate the winner on the accomplishment. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the nominated research groups of the above exceptional paper for their contributions to MCB and thank the Award Committee for voting and helping with the award.
