Prof. Amit Gefen

EPUAP Trustee

Prof. Amit Gefen received the B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and M.Sc. and
Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Tel Aviv University in 1994, 1997, and
2001, respectively. During 2002-2003 he was a postdoc at the University of
Pennsylvania, USA. He is currently a Full Professor with the Department of
Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of Tel Aviv University.

His research interests are in studying normal and pathological effects of
biomechanical factors on the structure and function of cells, tissues and
organs, with emphasis on the musculoskeletal system and applications in
chronic wound research. On 2007-2008 he was a visiting scientist in
Eindhoven University of Technology, where he developed tissue-engineered
model systems to study pressure ulcers.

To date, Prof. Gefen published more than 140 articles in peer-reviewed
international journals, many of which on chronic wounds, and he also edited
several books. He is now editing a book series on Mechanobiology, Tissue
Engineering and Biomaterials published by Springer, and serving at Editorial
Boards of several international journals, the Journal of Biomechanics,
Clinical Biomechanics, Medical Engineering & Physics, Computer Methods in
Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering, Journal of the Mechanical Behavior
of Biomedical Materials and the Journal of Tissue Viability, to mention a
