Michele Grimm's Biography

Michele Grimm, Wielenga Creative Engineering Endowed Professor, Michigan State University

Michele J. Grimm, Ph.D., is the Wielenga Creative Engineering Endowed Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University. She is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Biomedical Engineering Society, and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. Dr. Grimm completed her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at The Johns Hopkins University in 1990 and her Ph.D. in Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania in 1994. For the past 25 years, a significant portion of her research has involved injury biomechanics – from characterizing important tissue properties to developing appropriate models for the assessment of injury mechanisms. She has just finished a 3-year rotation as a program director at the National Science Foundation, overseeing the Biomechanics and Mechanobiology, Engineering of Biomedical Systems, and Disability & Rehabilitation Engineering Programs. As part of this role, she developed a joint funding program with CASIS to fund projects in tissue engineering and mechanobiology for the International Space Station.
