    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Dr. Spencer Szczesny heads the Multiscale Biomechanics and Mechanobiology Lab, which is part of the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at Penn State. His research investigates the interplay between tendon multiscale mechanics and mechanobiology in the context of tissue remodeling (e.g., degeneration, repair and development). The ultimate goals of his work are to identify the causes of tendon pathology, discover novel therapeutic options and direct the design of biomaterials that can recapitulate the behavior of native tissue. This multidisciplinary research involves the use of multiscale mechanical testing, computational modeling, cell and tissue culture and biomaterial fabrication.
