Featuring Assistant Professor Arielle Fischer ’11, Ph.D. ’16
Current treatments for joint trauma such as physical therapy and exercise are met with limited success, leaving many patients to develop future disease such as osteoarthritis. Technion Professor Arielle Fischer has a solution.
Join us for our premiere Park City virtual event with Asst. Prof. Arielle Fischer, head of the Applied Biomechanics and Wearable Technology Lab in the Technion Faculty of Biomedical Engineering. Prof. Fischer is combining technology and biology with mechanics to create ground-breaking solutions to mitigate persistent joint pathologies. From looking at biomedical markers to using high-tech sensors to improve joint rehabilitation, Prof. Fischer’s mult-disciplinary approach gives hope to patients in pain. Her team of electrical, biomedical, mechanical engineering, biology, neuroscience, and physiotherapist experts collaborate with hospitals, sports organizations, and military populations.
Born in the U.S., Prof. Fischer immigrated to Israel with her family when she was 10 years old. She started her studies at MIT and then transferred to the Technion, earning her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and her master’s and doctorate in mechanical engineering. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University before joining the Technion in October 2020 as a Zuckerman Faculty Scholar. The Mortimer B. Zuckerman STEM Leadership program supports future generations of leaders in science and technology in the U.S. and Israel.
