Jean-Philippe Berteau

Assistant Professor

Dr. Berteau is an educator and researcher with experience in Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering and Clinical sciences. Dr. Berteau is interested in bones, their biology and mechanical behavior, and their role as pathology biomarkers. His training in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering complement his clinical skills in Rehabilitation, and extend them into both Biomaterial and Orthopedic sciences.

BerteauLab team includes biomedical engineers and clinicians who collaborate closely with mathematicians, mechanical engineers and imaging specialists. Alumni of the team have been awarded of scientific prizes such as the Student Prize at the European Calcified Tissue Society Conference 2017 in Austria and the Travel Award at the Society of Biomechanics Conference 2017 in France.
