Dr. Reinhold Dauskardt, Professor and Associate Chair of the Dept. of Materials Science, Stanford University
Reinhold Dauskardt is Professor and Associate Chair of the Dept. of Materials Science at Stanford University and has appointments in the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, the Stanford Biodesign Institute, and the Dept. of Surgery, School of Medicine. Dauskardt and his group have worked extensively on integrating new hybrid materials into emerging nanoscience and energy technologies and on the biomechanics of human skin and soft tissues. His research on wound healing has concentrated on establishing a biomechanics framework to understand and control the biological processes that determine scar formation in healing wounds. Experimental studies are complimented with a range of computational capabilities. His interdisciplinary research includes interaction with researchers in academia, industry, and clinical practice. He has served as an editor for a number of journals and books, organized international conferences and symposia, and published over 300 articles in the scientific literature. Dauskardt has contributed significantly to leadership in Stanford’s multidisciplinary materials effort which spans several schools and the Stanford Hospital. He has received numerous awards, including the Alexander von Humboldt Research Award and, recently, The Henry Maso Award for fundamental contributions to the advancement of cosmetic and skin science, The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists.
