Physician Trammell Wins Schwitzer Award for INDYCAR Safety

The 55th annual Louis Schwitzer Award was presented Friday, May 21 to Terry Trammell, M.D., for his work on biomedical engineering for INDYCAR driver safety. The closest thing I could find to biomechanical engineering in medical school was orthopedic surgery. When you really think about it, a large number of orthopedic surgeons have an engineering background. Presented by engineers to engineers, this annual award memorializes the innovative spirit of Louis Schwitzer, an automotive engineer and pioneer who won the first automobile race at IMS in 1909. Beyond sponsoring this engineer-focused award, BorgWarner contributes to the excitement of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge in a variety of other ways.
