IMT awards the title of Doctor Honoris Causa to Jay Humphrey, Professor at Yale University
This prestigious honor was awarded on June 29, 2017 at Mines Saint-Etienne by Philippe Jamet, President of IMT, in the presence of many important scientific, academic and institutional figures.
Recognition for an inventor and pioneer in the field of mechanobiology
Mechanobiology studies the effects of mechanical stress (stretching, compression, shearing, etc.) on cells and living tissue.
A world specialist in cardiovascular biomechanics, Jay D. Humphrey has worked tirelessly throughout his career to galvanize the biomechanical engineering community and draw attention to the benefits that this science can offer to improve medicine.
Jay D. Humphreyworks closely with the Engineering and Health Center (CIS) of Mines Saint-Etienne. In 2014, he invited Stéphane Avril, Director of the CIS, to Yale University to work on biomechanics applied to soft tissues and the prevention of ruptured aneurysms, which notably led to the award of two grants from the prestigious European Research Council:
For Christian Roux, Director of Research and Innovation at IMT, “with this award IMT wanted to recognize this important scientist, known throughout the world for the quality of his work, his commitment to the scientific community and his strong human and ethical values. Professor Humphrey also leads an exemplary partnership with one of IMT’s most cutting-edge laboratories, offering very significant development opportunities.”
