Department of Biomechanics

Tony Chen, PhD

Tony Chen joined the Hospital for Special Surgery in March 2011 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. He is currently a Research Associate with interests in understanding changes in joint contact mechanics after injuries, and the cellular and tissue responses to changes in joint contact mechanics. He is currently the VP of Scientific Affairs at AGelity Biomechanics, a spin-off company from the Hospital for Special Surgery founded in 2014, which focuses on designing non-degradable implants for the repair of focal articular cartilage defects in the knee.

Dr. Chen obtained his BSE in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004 and doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Rochester (Rochester, NY USA) in 2010. His doctoral research was focused on the effects of fluid flow on engineered cartilage.
