Bryn Martin, University of Akron, USA.
In his research, Dr. Martin uses experimental and numerical methods to understand the underlying mechanical forces involved in the pathophysiology of Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and hydrocephalus. Dr. Martin is the director of the newly established Conquer Chiari Research Center (chiari-research.org) and a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Akron, Ohio.
Lynne Bilston, University of New South Wales, Australia.
Professor Bilston is a Senior Principal Research Fellow at Neuroscience Research Australia and Conjoint Professor in Medicine at the University of New South Wales. She is a biomedical engineer whose research focuses on how mechanical forces are involved in physiological and pathophysiological processes in the body. Her research encompasses injury biomechanics, neural and other soft tissue biomechanics, and the development of novel imaging methods for making mechanical measurements in vivo. She has a PhD in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania and is a National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia senior research fellow. She is a Senior Principal Research Fellow at Neuroscience Research Australia, and is a conjoint Professor at the University of New South Wales.
