Yi-Xian Qin, a leading expert in musculoskeletal tissue regeneration, has been named a Fellow of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR), Fotis Sotiropoulos, Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, has announced.
“Yi-Xian is a major contributor to the Biomedical Engineering Department and the entire Stony Brook community,” Sotiropoulos said.
“His research and expertise in biomechanics and mechanobiology are critical to the College and University-wide initiatives, including our new Institute for Engineering-Driven Medicine.”
Qin serves as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and International Programs for the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and is Professor and a founding faculty member in the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME). He also serves as Director of Orthopaedic Bioengineering Research Laboratory at Stony Brook.
With more than 25 years in academia, his research is focused on musculoskeletal tissue regeneration and translation through physical regulation and characterization of tissue quality, as well as evaluating the mechanisms responsible for tissue remodeling. He has published 110 peer-reviewed papers and more than 20 books and book chapters in the musculoskeletal research areas.
Yi-Xian’s work has generated a total of $15 million over the past 20 years, and has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), as well as industries. He is also Fellows of the American Institute of Medicine and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), and the International Astronautics Academy (IAA).
The Fellow of the ASBMR program serves to recognize long-term members who have made outstanding contributions to the field of bone, mineral science, and musculoskeletal research.
