Markus Buehler named Editor in Chief of prestigious scientific publication
Effective January 2016, Department Head and McAfee Professor of Engineering Markus Buehler was named Editor in Chief of the scholarly publication, Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials. With a primary focus on the synthesis of materials science, biology, and medical and dental science, the publication specifically concerns itself with the mechanical deformation – damage and failure under applied forces, tribology, fatigue, creep, wear and adhesion – of biological material and biomaterials, including those designed to mimic or replace biological materials, as well as natural materials such as those found in plants and animals, at all scales from the molecular to the physiological macroscale. The journal also co-sponsors the biannual International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues. More information.
