Biographical information

Anthony G. Lau, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at The College of New Jersey. He received his B.S.E. in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering at Duke University and his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia’s Center for Applied Biomechanics. His research expertise is in human injury biomechanics and bone health. Dr. Lau received a First Award Postdoctoral Fellowship from the National Space Biomedical Research Institute in 2012 for his proposed project investigating bone strength changes in mice that flew on the last space shuttle mission STS-135. Dr. Lau was a recipient of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) Harold M. Frost Young Investigator Award as well as UNC Post-Doctoral Award for Research Excellence in 2014. Dr. Lau’s research lab focuses on multi-length scale biomechanics of bone through biomechanical experimentation, medical image processing, and computational modeling. In 2021, Dr. Lau receive a NASA Research Grant to investigate bone strength changes from exposure to Galactic Cosmic Radiation.
