Jacques Ohayon, PhD


Polytech Annecy/Chambéry, Univ. Savoie Mont-Blanc, and researcher at TIMC-CNRS laboratory, Biomechanics team, Univ. Grenoble-Alpes, France

Jacques Ohayon, PhD is Professor of Mechanics at the Engineering school Polytech, Univ. Savoie Mont-Blanc, France. From 1985 to 1988, he was a visiting fellow at the Biomedical Engineering Branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda MD, USA. He received the 1998 Junior Prize of the French Biomechanics Society (SB) for his research on the biomechanics of the left ventricle. His current research focuses on the biomechanics of atherosclerotic plaque and the development of new clinical tools for imaging the elasticity of vulnerable plaques. From 2006 to 2007, he was visiting professor at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering at the NIH, USA. Jacques Ohayon was the Chairman of the SB, which also awarded him the Senior Prize in 2016 for his work on the biomechanics of coronary plaque rupture. In 2020, he was a visiting professor at Texas A & M University and conducted his research in the field of endothelial cell mechanobiology at the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI). Since 2020, he is also Adjunct Professor of Cardiovascular Sciences at HMRI, Texas, USA.
