Current Affiliation: University of Washington

Ted Gross is currently a Professor and the Sigvard T. Hansen, Jr. Endowed Chair in the Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine at the University of Washington.  His research has consistently mixed engineering and biology, but in different proportions over time (more recently trending toward biology). His group at UW, the Orthopaedic Science Laboratories, is a multi-faculty, multi-disciplinary group with a flat organizational structure (i.e., they dynamically form groups of varied composition for a given project) that explores how bone and bone cells respond to mechanical stimuli in normal and pathological situations.  The 1985 ASB meeting in Ann Arbor was the first scientific society meeting Ted attended.
