 Kipour Ata is a junior faculty and research investigator at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and an associate member of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard. He has a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering and has 10+ years of research experience within academic research centers and industrial R&D departments. His research focuses on applying disruptive technologies to diagnose, prevent and treat musculoskeletal injuries. His current research interests include prevention and treatment of knee injuries including Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tears and Osteoarthritis (OA). Ata’s research ranges from pre-clinical to clinical and encompasses both basic science and translational investigations. He has collaborated with multi-disciplinary teams of design and product development engineers, R&D scientists and clinicians in various projects aimed to develop novel medical devises and surgical techniques to address musculoskeletal injuries, particularly for knee and spine. He is enthusiastic to use engineering principles to improve human life and driven to turn laboratory and bench-top research into medical devices/products to enhance health care
