Mentors:


Savio Woo L-Y. Woo
Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Bioengineering
Director of Musculoskeletal Research Center
University of Pittsburgh

Research Areas:
  • Development of biodegradable metallic materials to assist the healing of ligaments and tendons as well as for implantable devices for orthopaedic applications.
  • Kinematics of synovial joints, including knee and shoulder, by developing a novel robotic universal force-moment sensor testing system to assess the roles of various soft tissues.
  • Functional tissue engineering approaches involving the use of extracellular matrix (ECM) bioscaffolds, i.e., ECM-SIS to improve the healing of injured ligaments and tendons.
  • Theoretical and experimental studies of the nonlinear viscoelastic and mechanical properties of biological tissues.
  • Effects of stress and motion on healing and repair of soft tissues.


  • K. Kirk Shung
    Dwight C. and Hildagarde E. Baum Chair in Biomedical Engineering and Professor of Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California

    Research Areas:
    Dr. Shung’s research interest is in ultrasonic transducers, high frequency ultrasonic imaging and ultrasound microbeams. His laboratory has developed ultrahigh frequency (UHF) single element transducers (>100 MHz), several versions of high frequency (>30 MHz) linear arrays and an imaging platform to test these arrays. He is also interested in UHF ultrasound applications in cellular bioengineering, e.g. cell trapping, stimulation and sorting.
