Congratulations Young Investigator Adam Wegner!

Adam was awarded the Elsevier Young Investigator Award for his work on the role of Nox4 in post-traumatic osteoarthritis. The award was given for his presentation at the Oxygen Club of California 2016 World Congress on Redox Medicine and Nutrition. Nox4 is an enzyme that creates hydrogen peroxide, a very important short-range signaling molecule for maintaining bone and cartilage health. Adam is currently a 3rd year resident in the UC Davis Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and took an extra year to work on the Nox4 project.
