Dr. Gunes Uzer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at Boise State University. He joined to the department in August 2016. Dr. Uzer is the director of the Mechanical Adaptations Laboratory leading a multidisciplinary research program.
In the past 10 years, Dr. Uzer’s studies have covered a broad range of topics, including advanced material characterization, experimental photometry, finite element modeling, as well as cell and animal models. His work on stem cell mechanobiology was focused on identifying relevant components of mechanical signals that modulate a wide variety of bone cell functions as well as defining the mechanical control of stem cell structure, function and fate.
