Eve Donnelly: Associate Professor
Eve Donnelly is an Associate Professor and the Dale R. Corson Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell University. Her current research focuses on characterizing disease- and treatment-induced changes in the properties of mineral and collagen and their effects on fracture risk. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mineralized Tissues Laboratory at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). Her Ph.D. research was performed in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University.
Dr. Donnelly received an NIH Ruth L Kirchstein National Research Service Award for her postdoctoral fellowship at HSS examining the effects of bone tissue mineral and matrix properties on fracture incidence. She received the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research’s Young Investigator Award in 2010 and Junior Faculty Osteoporosis Research Award in 2012 for her work on the effects of bisphosphonates on bone tissue properties. She received the New Investigator Recognition Award from the Orthopedic Research Society in 2009 and the Alice L. Jee Memorial Young Investigator Award from the Sun Valley Workshop on Skeletal Tissue Biology in 2007 for her work on imaging primary cilia in skeletal tissues. In 2013 she received an NIH K01 award to study bone material properties and mechanical behavior in Type II diabetic patients and in 2015 received an NSF CAREER award, “CAREER: Role of Variations in Tissue Material Properties in Bone Fracture Behavior.”
