AITF iCORE Strategic Chair in Advanced Diagnostics and Devices
Professor Ronsky's research group focuses on understanding the links between musculoskeletal system structure, joint mechanics, dynamic joint function, neuromotor control and joint injuries and diseases such as Osteoarthritis and Scoliosis. Medical imaging, experimental and numerical modeling and simulation approaches are applied to develop novel diagnostic and treatment devices and techniques to enhance health care.
Dr. Ronsky joined the UofC in 1994 after being awarded an NSERC Women's Faculty Award. In 2004 she was awarded the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers Award for the Support of Women in the Engineering Profession; 2005 - the AWSN Minerva Mentoring Award for Women in Science and Innovation; 2005 - the Society of Women in Engineering (SWE) - Women in Engineering Leadership Award (WELI); 2005 - APEGGA AIF Summit Award for Research Excellence; 2006 - APEGGA AIF Summit Award for Excellence in Education. She was the Director of the Centre for Bioengineering Research and Education from 2003 - 2009 and works closely with the Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Specialization. Janet has been on the Board of Directors for the Alberta Research Council since 2006 and most recently became a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. She is currently the Director of the Biovantage Alberta Ingenuity Centre and the Bose Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Technology Development Centre.
