Short Biography: Dr. Liyun Wang is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at University of Delaware, Director of Center for Biomechanical Engineering Research, and Co-Director of the Multiscale Assessment Core in Delaware Center for Musculoskeletal Research. Trained in Mechanical and Electirical Engineering (BS, MS, both from Universtiy of Science and Technology of China, Hefei), and Biomedical Engineering (PhD, City College of New York), Dr. Wang’s research focuses biomechanics and mechanobiology. Combining engineering modeling, mechanical testing, animal models, advanced imaging, and cellular and molecular biology, she has studied how mechanical forces impact bone, cartilage, and vascular health in the context of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, diabetic bone diseases, and cancer bone metastasis. Dr. Wang has been elected as Fellow of American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and American Society of Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR).
This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Jean Jiang, Professor and Zachry Distinguished University Chair at UT Health San Antonio.
