Keynote Speakers

International Conference on Advances in Bioscience, Bioengineering, and Biotechnology (ICABBB’19)



We are very happy to announce the following keynote speakers for the International Conference on Advances in Bioscience, Bioengineering, and Biotechnology (ICABBB'19):



Keynote Speaker - Dr. Sarah Du

Dr. Sarah E. Du
Florida Atlantic University, USA
Keynote Speaker

Dr. Sarah Du holds a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in 2011. She received her postdoctoral training in the Nanomechanics Lab at MIT between 2011 to 2014. After that, she joined Florida Atlantic University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering. Her research is focused on the understanding of cellular biomechanics and biophysics under influences of human pathophysiological processes, using novel microfluidics assays. She is also interested in development of microfluidics-based in vitro disease models and biosensors for the study of human placental malaria, sickle cell disease and nerve regeneration.

Dr. Victor Huayamave - Keynote Speaker

Dr. Victor Huayamave
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, USA
Keynote Speaker

Dr. Victor Huayamave holds a Ph.D. Degree in Mechanical Engineering with emphasis in biomechanics
from the University of Central Florida. In 2015, he joined the faculty of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University as Visiting Assistant Professor. His research interests include finite element analysis, rigid body
dynamics, multiscale modeling, and muscle mechanics. Specifically, he is interested in developing
multiscale models for pediatric orthopedic pathologies such as developmental dysplasia of the hip. By using
patient-specific anatomical models derived from MRI and CT scan data, Dr. Huayamave models the
biomechanics of pathologies to improve the design of non-surgical devices. In addition, he has extensive
experience using simulation software for developing solid models and 3D design concepts for mechanical
products and machinery equipment.
