Josa Hanzlik

Whitaker International Scholar to Netherlands 2013-14

Biomedical Engineering PhD Candidate


Josa proposes to work with the researchers of The Orthopaedic Research Laboratory, Netherlands, to create mathematical models determining the implant or patient factors that increase the amount of bone ingrowth into porous implants. Beyond Mechanobiology, she also hopes to investigate which factors contribute to the low number of women in STEM fields both in the Netherlands and the US. She has also been a Fulbright Alternate and Fulbright Finalist.  

Originally from Rochester, NY, Josa is a member of Professor Steven Kurtz’s Implant Research Center. She was also President of Drexel Graduate Women in Science and Engineering and is actively engaged in science outreach activities, especially those targeting girls and women.
