Paul C. IvancicPaul C. Ivancic received his B.Sc. in Mathematics & Applied Mechanics in 1995 from Queen's University, Ontario, Canada. He received his M.S.E. in Bioengineering (1997), M.S.E. in Computer & Information Science (1999), and M.A. in Mathematics (2000) from the University of Pennsylvania. He received his M.S. (2002), M.Phil. (2003), and Ph.D. (2006) in Biomedical Engineering from Yale University where he conducted spine biomechanics research in the Yale Biomechanics Laboratory under the mentorship of Manohar Panjabi. He has published over 30 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Ivancic's research interests include human injury biomechanics, spine biomechanics, whiplash, and neck injury prevention. In addition to the 2007 Promising Young Scientist Award from ISB, he has received several other awards for his research including the Margaret H. Hines Award for best oral presentation at the 2007 Injury Biomechanics Symposium at The Ohio State University and the Raymond John Wean Foundation Fellowship from Yale University in 2000-2003. He is currently an Associate Research Scientist in the Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation at Yale University School of Medicine where he is continuing spine biomechanics research at the Yale Biomechanics Laboratory. His future research will focus on understanding neck injury prevention during motor vehicle collisions.
