Christopher A. Lemmon
Christopher A. Lemmon has a diverse research background that includes mechanical engineering, cell biology, biophysics, biomedical engineering, and molecular biology. Lemmon received his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Lehigh University (Bethlehem, Pa, USA) in 1996. He, subsequently, worked as a Design Engineer for Delphi Harrison Thermal Systems. In 2000, he received his M.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, Wis, USA). At this point, he became interested in applying his mechanical background to biomedical research. He earned his Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Md, USA) in 2008. Lemmon is currently completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Duke University Medical Center. He will be joining the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University in January 2012. His research interests include cellular mechanotransduction, assembly mechanisms of extracellular matrix (ECM) structures, and development of tools to measure cell-generated traction forces and ECM material properties.
