Alan Grodzinsky is the Director of MIT's Center for Biomedical Engineering, and is Professor of Biological, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering in the Departments of Biological Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering at MIT. His research interests include Osteoarthritis and the degeneration and repair of cartilage, drug delivery for Osteoarthritis, cellular mechanotransduction and molecular nano-mechanics. He has published over 320 refereed journal articles and reviews in these fields of research. He co-developed two required core graduate courses in the Biological Engineering at MIT and published a textbook related to these subjects on “Fields, Forces and Flows in Biological Systems” (Garland Science, 2011). He was elected Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and is past Chair of the Gordon Research Conference on Musculoskeletal Biology and Bioengineering. He is past President of the Orthopaedic Research Society and the International Cartilage Repair Society. He was on the Editorial Boards of Journal of Orthopaedic Research, Polymer Networks and Gels, Arthritis and Rheumatology, and is now on the boards of Osteoarthritis and Cartilage and Biophysical Journal. He received the NIH MERIT Award for research on Cartilage, and other awards including the Melville Medal of the ASME, the Kappa Delta Prize of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the Borelli Award of the American Society of Biomechanics. He has consulted for numerous industrial and academic institutions, and to federal agencies including the NIH, NSF, FDA, and the Department of Justice, and has received the Honorary Doctorate from the University of Montreal.
