Next-generation bioinks with enhanced biological and mechanical performance
Professor, Department of Health Sciences and Technology, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Marcy Zenobi-Wong is a Professor in the Department of Health Sciences & Technology at ETH Zürich, Switzerland. She obtained her PhD from Stanford University where she studied how mechanical forces influence skeletal development. After a post-doctoral fellowship in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, University of Michigan, she moved to the M.E. Müller Institute for Biomechanics in Bern, Switzerland, where she became Group Leader of Cartilage Biomechanics and completed her Habilitation. In 2003, she joined the Institute for Biomedical Engineering at ETH Zürich, where she headed the tissue engineering activities. She was also instrumental in establishing the successful MSc Biomedical Engineering program at ETH Zürich and is the co-initiator of multiple graduate level courses in biomedical and tissue engineering. Her group’s research is focused around the development of functional biomaterials for cartilage regeneration and biofabrication technologies including electrospinning, two-photopolymerization and bioprinting.
