Van C. Mow

Dr. Van C. Mow is one of the earliest researchers in biomechanics. Throughout his more than 50-year career, Dr. Mow has made outstanding and brilliant contributions to orthopedic biomedical engineering, including biomechanics studies on articular cartilage, intervertebral disk, knee meniscus, diarthrodial joint mechanics, joint lubrication, and osteoarthritis.

Among Dr. Mow's many achievements, he was the founding chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science from 2000 to 2011. To honor Dr. Mow for his many contributions to the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the School has created the annual Van C. Mow Lecture. Each fall, a distinguished leader in the field of biomedical engineering is invited to deliver this lecture.
