Background

Dr. Delphine Dean is the Gregg-Graniteville Associate Professor of Bioengineering at Clemson University. She earned her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2005 and started her faculty position at Clemson in January 2007. Her lab leads a wide range of studies focused on understanding mechanics and interactions of biological systems across length scales. Her expertise is in nano- to micro-scale characterization of biological tissues including experimental techniques such as atomic force microscopy and mathematical modeling such as finite element analysis. She is the recipient of the 2011 Phil and Mary Bradley Award for Mentoring in Creative Inquiry for her work in mentoring undergraduates at Clemson, where she currently mentors 12 undergraduate creative inquiry research and design teams. These student teams work on a variety of projects including investigating the use of dental pulp stem cells for help with dental tissue regeneration, developing mathematical models to predict of cell growth and migration, redesign of medical training simulators, investigating the use of robotics for solving biomedical problems, predicting rotator cuff injury from ultrasound, and developing medical technology for the developing world.
