Biography

Farshid Guilak, Ph.D. is the Laszlo Ormandy Professor and Vice-Chair of Orthopaedic Surgery at Duke University Medical Center and is the Director of Orthopaedic Research. He received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University. Dr. Guilak’s research focuses on the study of osteoarthritis, a painful and debilitating disease of the synovial joints. His laboratory has used a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the role of biomechanical factors in the onset and progression of osteoarthritis, and as a basis for the development of new pharmacologic and stem-cell therapies for this disease. He has published several hundred articles and book chapters and has co-edited three books, “Cell Mechanics and Cellular Engineering”, “Functional Tissue Engineering”, and “Computational Modeling in Biomechanics”. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Biomechanics, associate editor for Osteoarthritis & Cartilage, and serves on the editorial boards of several other journals. He has won several national and international awards for his research and mentorship.
