About the Author

Dr. Stefaan Verbruggen holds a bachelor degree and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the National University of Ireland Galway, where his research focused on the mechanobiology of bone cells in both health and disease. His subsequent research was in the area of developmental biomechanics in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, focusing on how the prenatal biomechanical environment affects the development of musculoskeletal diseases in later life. Dr. Verbruggen is currently a Research Fellow investigating the mechanobiology of cancer metastases in bone, in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University in New York and in the Institute of Bioengineering at Queen Mary University of London.
