Associate Professor for Orthopedic Biomechanics
Jess Snedeker has served as Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Biomechanics at the University of Zurich (Department of Orthopaedics) and the ETH Zurich (Department of Health Sciences and Technologies) since 2011. He previously served as Assistant Professor from 2006-2011.
Dr. Snedeker holds degrees in Mechanical Engineering (B.S. Lehigh University 1995, Ph.D. ETH Zurich 2004), and Bioengineering (M.S. Penn State University 2000). His graduate research experience was focused on musculoskeletal biomechanics, soft-tissue mechanics, and blunt trauma. His post-doctoral training focused on the development of combined experimental and computational techniques for microscopy based study of tendon mechanics and biology.
Dr. Snedeker¹s research interests focus on the role of extracellular matrix mechanics in connective tissue degeneration and regeneration. His interdisciplinary group applies advanced engineering and microscopy techniques to explore collagen matrix mechanics and biology, cell mechanics and biology, and cell-matrix interaction. He has authored over
60 original articles in leading scientific journals, and is actively engaged in undergraduate and graduate education.
