Jeff Weiss

University of Utah bioengineering faculty member Jeff Weiss will
receive the 2013 Van Mow Medal from the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers, or ASME.

This highly competitive award is ASME’s highest
honor for a mid-career bioengineer, and honors an individual who has
demonstrated meritorious contributions to the field of bioengineering
through research, education, professional development, leadership in the
development of the profession, mentorship to young bioengineers, and
with service to the bioengineering community.

Weiss is being honored “for seminal contributions to research in
bimoechanics related to fundamental structure-function relationships in
musculoskeletal soft tissues, subject-specific modeling of joint
mechanics, image-based biomechanics, the mechanics of angiogenesis, and
the development and distribution of the FEBio software suite.”

The Van C. Mow Medal recipient receives $1,000 and a travel expense
supplement to attend the award of presentation.
