Young-Min Kwon, Ph.D., M.D.


Available: 06/01/19, Expires: 06/28/21

The Orthopaedic Bioengineering Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School offers the opportunity for the student to be involved in multiple novel projects enabling the development of a wide range of research experience in the field of hip and knee joint biomechanics under the supervision of Professor Young-Min Kwon, Director of the Bioengineering Lab.

The responsibilities of the student will include quantitative investigation of the in vivo hip and knee biomechanics of patients with total joint replacements. Specifically, the student will be involved in processing CT and MRI images of patients to construct novel 3D anatomic models of the hip and knee and examine the optimal surgical implantation of joint replacements. This includes data gathering, analysis, and preparation of abstracts/manuscripts as well as presentation at national professional meeting.

The student will work with a multidisciplinary team of engineers and surgeons in conducting human joint kinematics and kinetics evaluation using imaging and motion analysis techniques.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
