NOVEL INSIGHTS AND APPROACHES TO PELVIC FLOOR IMAGING AND ANALYSIS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH
Keynote Speaker: Steven Abramowitch, PhD
Steven D. Abramowitch is a William K. Whiteford Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering. He is nationally and internationally recognized as a leader for his work on biomechanics related to female pelvic health, generating more than $10M in research funding and publishing more than 80 peer-reviewed journal articles that have been collectively cited over 5000 times. He and his team have done foundational work on analyzing pelvic floor biomechanics and leveraging advanced imaging to make important insights into the causes of pelvic floor disorders.
Dr. Abramowitch has also received a number of accolades for his work focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). He is the co-PI of two major NSF grants creating opportunities and changing environments to ensure the success of underrepresented and underserved students in Engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
