Professor Lidan You elected CSME fellow

youApril 13, 2015MIE Associate Professor Lidan You has been named Fellow by the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME). The distinction recognizes those who have shown excellence in mechanical engineering and has actively contributed to the progress of their profession and society.

Professor You is the director of Cellular Biomechanics Laboratory at U of T. Her research is focused on solving biomechanical questions in muscular skeletal system at the cellular level. Specifically, her team is working on: the anti-resorptive effect of mechanical loading on bone tissue; pressure effect on bone cell mechanotransduction; osteogenic potential of high frequency low magnitude vibration on bone adaptation; angiogenesis involvement in initiation of bone resorption under disuse condition; the advanced microfluidic system for bone cell mechanotransduction study; the role of focal adhesion assembly in cell mechanosensitivity using micropatterned surface; and, the development of advanced artificial bone matrix by employing novel microfabrication technologies.
