Musculoskeletal Diseases Research Community Seminar Series continues.

Special guest speaker: Professor Donald D. Anderson, Ph.D, from The University of Iowa.

Title of the talk: Engineering in Orthopedics: A stranger in a strange land.


Don Anderson is the Richard and Jan Johnson Chair in Orthopedic Biomechanics, Professor, and Vice-Chair of Research in the Department of Orthopedics & Rehabilitation at the University of Iowa. He holds a BSE in Biomedical Engineering, as well as an MS and PhD in Mechanical Engineering, all earned at the University of Iowa. Dr. Anderson has 30+ years of experience with image analysis, computer modeling, and computational stress analysis in musculoskeletal applications. Dr. Anderson's primary research focus throughout his career has been on articular joint biomechanics, specifically studying the mechanical relationship between joint injury and the subsequent development of post-traumatic osteoarthritis. All of his post-graduate career has been spent working in a clinical orthopaedic setting, which has guided his work toward informing and influencing patient care.

We hope you will join us for an engaging seminar!
