Dr. Vanderby is a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and in the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, where he directs the Orthopedic Research Laboratories. He has an affiliate appointment in the Departments of Engineering Physics and Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses entirely on orthopedic issues.
Vanderby is particularly interested in orthopedic tissues (bone, ligament, tendon,cartilage, etc.). His research explores wound healing or regeneration of these tissues. Thisincludes equal parts of functional characterization (for example, biomechanics), microstructuralmorphology and composition, and the relevant biological sciences (such as cell and molecularbiology, and developmental biology).
Additionally, Dr. Vanderby is interested in the analysis of ultrasonic wave propagationin these tissues for novel, clinically relevant characterizations. To study these orthopedicissues, he uses and adapts engineering and biological methods including experimental, analytical, and computational mechanics.
