Rami Mhanna received his BE in Computer and Communications Engineering from Notre Dame University (Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon) in 2006 and his MSc in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Melbourne (Melbourne, Australia) in 2008. He pursued his Doctoral studies in the Biosensors and Bioelectronics and the Cartilage Engineering and Regeneration labs at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich, Switzerland). He defended his PhD titled “Engineering Chondrogenic Micro-Environments for Tissue Engineering Applications” in 2013 and then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the 3B’s research group (Biomaterials, Biodegradables and Biomimetics) in Portugal. In 2014, he joined the Biomedical Engineering Program at the American University of Beirut as an Assistant Professor. In 2020, he was appointed as interim coordinator of the Biomedical Engineering Program at AUB. His research is focused on the fields of tissue engineering, drug delivery and surface science where he utilizes biomimetic microenvironments for basic and applied investigations. His work was published in more than 20 peer-reviewed original research articles in highly ranked journals such as Small, Biomaterials, and Advanced Functional Materials.
