Kyriacos Athanasiou, professor and chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was honored for his distinguished contributions to biomedical engineering and bioengineering, particularly for biomechanics-driven tissue regeneration, for leadership in engineering-in-medicine, and for commercial technologies based on his research. His laboratory focuses on the challenge of regenerating cartilage tissue.
David Fyhrie, professor of biomedical engineering and David Linn Endowed Chair of Orthopaedic Surgery, was honored for his distinguished contributions to computational and experimental biomedical engineering, particularly for novel contributions to the prediction and prevention of osteoporotic fracture, and for exploring new ways to treat musculoskeletal disorders.
Athanasiou and Fyhrie are among seventeen new Fellows at UC Davis this year. Find the full list of UC Davis 2012 Fellows here: http://news.ucdavis.edu/search/news_detail.lasso?id=10425
