Camilo Arango MD.
Dr. Arango is a Dentist and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who specializes in oncology and complex reconstruction. He earned both his degrees in the CES University in Medellin, Colombia. And has had his work presented in numerous national and international congresses including the Colombian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, The AAOMS Annual Meeting and the European Congress for Cranio-facial surgery. He has significant experience with the reconstruction of mandibular and maxillary cancer patients by means of a free fibula flap and has used 3D technology in more than 80 of these cases, which he has been following and publishing.
Melanie Coathup Ph.D.
Dr. Coathup qualified in Medical Cell Biology from the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom in 1992, She became an Assistant Professor at UCL in 2001 followed by an Associate Professor before becoming Head of the Center for Tissue and Cell Research at UCL and Divisional Head of Athena SWAN and Women in Science in 2014. In 2017, she joined the College of Medicine, University of Central Florida as Professor of Medicine and Director of the Biionix Cluster.
Over the last 24 years, Dr. Coathup has worked in Biomedical Engineering and orthopedic innovation. Her research, that has been recognized internationally, has focused on improving orthopaedic implant fixation and enhancing bone regeneration. The focus is on translational themes that include biomaterials, stem cells, the design and follow-up of implants, implant infection and novel synthetic bone graft substitute materials
Professor of Medicine
Eduardo Divo Ph.D.
Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Divo currently serves as Professor and Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). Mechanical Engineer and Information Engineer from the Central Technological University (UNITEC) of Venezuela and multiple graduate Certificates and Degrees in Statistical Control from ITESM as well as an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Central Florida (UCF). Dr. Divo is actively involved in Biomedical Engineering Research including Cardiovascular Hemodynamics, Lung Dynamics, Hip Mechanics, Muscle and Tissue Mechanics, Radiotherapy, and others. His fundamental research concentrates on the development of Mesh-Reduction techniques aiming at generating automated numerical solutions of field problems in the areas of Fluid Dynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Porosity, and Elasticity, as well as the multi-physics interaction of these phenomena in a number of ensuing applications in the Biomedical field. Thanks to his experience in the field and being co-authored over 250 articles, have granted him multiple awards as a Distinguished Researcher.
