Bio :

Dr. Marcy Zenobi-Wong is Professor of Tissue Engineering and Biofabrication at ETH Zürich, Switzerland. She obtained her PhD from Stanford University where she studied how mechanical forces influence skeletal development. After a post-doctoral fellowship in the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, University of Michigan, she moved to the M.E. Müller Institute for Biomechanics in Bern, Switzerland, where she became Group Leader of Cartilage Biomechanics and completed her Habilitation in 2000. The Zenobi-Wong research group is focused on the development of advanced biomaterials for cartilage regeneration using biofabrication technologies including electrospinning, two-photopolymerization and bioprinting. She is currently Vice President of the Swiss Society for Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine. Two spin-off companies have been founded based on technologies from her laboratory.
