|Professor Vivek Shenoy, Eduardo D. Glandt President’s Distinguished Professor Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been awarded the prestigious Heilmeier Faculty Award for Excellence in Research. |
He will give a talk titled: “Cell-Matrix Interactions in Cancer and Fibrosis: Multiscale Chemo-Mechanical Models” on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 3:00 PM in the Wu and Chen Auditorium, Levine Hall, 3330 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA.
|Vivek Shenoy is the Eduardo D. Glandt President’s Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania.Dr. Shenoy’s research focuses on developing theoretical concepts and numerical methods to understand the basic principles that control the behavior of both engineering and biological systems. He has used rigorous analytical methods and multiscale modeling techniques, ranging from atomistic density functional theory to continuum methods, to gain physical insight into a myriad of problems in materials science and biomechanics. Dr. Shenoy’s honors include a National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2000), the Richard and Edna Solomon Assistant Professorship (2002-2005) and the Rosenbaum Visiting Fellowship from the Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Science at the University of Cambridge. He is the principal investigator and director of the NSF-funded Science and Technology Center for Engineering Mechanobiology established in 2016. He also serves the editor of the Biophysical Journal and is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).|
