Shailly Jariwala received her BS Degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Mumbai, India in 2006. She joined the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering at Syracuse University, receiving her M.S. in 2009 and Ph.D. in 2013. In her graduate research, she led efforts in development and characterization of novel acrylic two-solution bone cements for treatment of spinal compression fractures. As a post-doctoral fellow with the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at Pennsylvania State College of Medicine, she gained vast expertise in design, development, and characterization of orthopaedic biomaterials (bone grafts) and translational research models (osseointegrated implants, mechanical loading of implants). Dr. Jariwala is a past recipient of the prestigious Entrepreneur Fellowship at The Center for the Translation of Rehabilitation Engineering Advances and Technology (TREAT), offered jointly by NIH and Dartmouth Biomedical Engineering Center (DBEC) for Orthopedics. Here, Dr. Jariwala was the project lead for design, development, manufacturing, and non-clinical regulatory testing of an intra-osseous infusion needle placement guide (TibFinderTM, Class I medical device). She also delivered expert consultation to accelerate commercialization of rehabilitation and assistive technologies, including guidance of FDA regulatory & reimbursement strategies for new medical devices. Dr. Jariwala is currently an Assistant Professor under the Regenerative Rehabilitation Medical Research Program at the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) and is responsible for leading, planning, and conducting biomedical research and development in support of a portfolio of projects in regenerative medicine that includes neuro-regeneration, orthopedic tissue repair, biomaterials design, 3D printing and 3D bioprinting.
