Brief Biography

Dr Stefaan Verbruggen is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research Fellow at Queen Mary University of London. Currently based in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University, New York, Dr Verbruggen's research focuses on the mechanobiology of cancer, and how it metastasises to bone from other areas of the body.

Prior to beginning his fellowship, Dr Verbruggen conducted his PhD research in bone cell mechanobiology the Biomechanics Research Centre at the National University of Ireland Galway, followed by postdoctoral research in how fetal movements affect joint development in the Developmental Biomechanics Lab at Imperial College London.
