Gang Bao Chairs a New Technical Committee on Mechanics in Biology and Medicine

The Executive Committee of the Applied Mechanics Division, of the ASME International, has just established a new Technical Committee on Mechanics in Biology and Medicine, chaired by Gang Bao, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.

This Committee aims to provide a home to a growing community in applied mechanics interested in biological and medical research, and a link between AMD and other organizations with similar interests. Riding on the enthusiasm in the field, the Committee will help to define exciting research directions that promote mechanics in biology and medicine.

The Applied Mechanics Division now has a total of 17 Technical Committees.
