Tony M. Keaveny
Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering
Tony M. Keaveny is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering and the Co-Director of the Berkeley BioMechanics Laboratory.Originally from Ireland, he obtained his undergraduate training in Mechanical Engineering from University College Dublin,Ireland, and his MS and PhD degrees, also in Mechanical Engineering, from Cornell University, followed by post-doctoral studies in Orthopaedic Biomechanics at Beth Israel Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston. His research is focused on bone biomechanics, osteoporosis, finite element analysis, and bone-implant systems. The recipient of the NIH FIRST and NSF CAREER awards and the Y.C. Fung Young Investigator Award and the Van C. Mow Medal, both from the ASME Bioengineering Division, Professor Keaveny has co-authored over 170 peer-reviewed journal articles, over 200 conference abstracts, and the textbook “Orthopaedic Biomechanics: Mechanics and Design in Musculoskeletal Systems”. A keen advocate of translational research, Dr. Keaveny founded O.N. Diagnostics, which has successfully translated finite element-based virtual stress testing of bones into a nationally reimbursed clinical service for osteoporosis testing and patient care.
