Dr. Subburaj (Subbu) is an Assistant Professor in the Pillar of Engineering Product Development (EPD) at SUTD, where he leads Healthcare Engineering and Design Track and the Medical Engineering and Design Lab. He leads an inter-disciplinary research team with the goal of designing and developing medical devices, assistive technologies, image-based quantitative biomarkers, and computing tools (machine learning, artificial intelligence) for diagnosing, monitoring, treating, and potentially preventing musculoskeletal disorders (knee osteoarthritis/ osteoporosis /bone fracture ) and disabilities by understanding bio-mechanical implications of those diseases and disabilities. He collaborated with physicians and clinical researchers from Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), Technical University of Munich (TUM), Singapore General Hospital (SGH), and Changi General Hospital (CGH) to combine research and technical expertise to address real-life clinical problems affecting Asia-Pacific and the World. Before joining SUTD, he did his postdoctoral work in Musculoskeletal Quantitative Imaging Research (MQIR) laboratory at University of California San Francisco (UCSF).  At UCSF, he worked with a spectrum of clinicians (from radiology, orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine, and physiotherapy/rehabilitation science) on characterizing magnetic resonance image (MRI) based bio-markers to understand the physiological and biochemical response of knee joint cartilage to physical exercise and acute loading. He has also developed and validated 3D modelling and quantification methods to study joint (hip/knee) loading pattern and contact kinematics in young healthy adults and patients with osteoarthritis. Subbu received his PhD from the Indian Institute Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), India, in 2009.  During his PhD, he collaborated with Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH), Mumbai, on developing a Surgery Planning System for Tumour Knee Reconstruction. He developed automated geometric reasoning algorithms to (i) extract morphometric characteristics of bones (femur/tibia/pelvis) using 3D reconstructed models from CT images, (ii) automate pre-operative planning and guidance tasks of limb salvage surgery, and (iii) extract patient-specific anatomical parameters for designing implants for joint replacements (knee/hip). He also worked with orthodontists from local hospitals in Mumbai, India, on designing and developing prostheses and surgical instruments/guides for reconstructing maxillofacial defects. After his PhD, he worked as a research specialist (surgery planning) in the Biomedical Engineering Technology incubation Centre (BETiC) at IIT Bombay, before moving to UCSF for his postdoctoral studies.  

Dr. Franck J. Rybicki pioneered medical 3D printing, beginning with his global introduction of full-face transplantation surgical planning; his discoveries and opinions have been published in New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet, and other multidisciplinary journals. At RSNA 2013, his laboratory’s presentation (as published in American Journal of Transplantation) included a Press Conference demonstrating the impact of clinical 3D printing; it was covered by all major television networks. Via the Associated Press the release had over 150 major US and international media feeds; the RSNA has officially reported an audience of 783 million individuals. Dr. Rybicki developed and moderated the world’s first radiology-based society-CME educational program in medical 3D printing. This and related programs managed by Dr. Rybicki have provided the opportunity for the first 1,200 radiologists and imaging scientists to obtain radiology-based CME for live software training in the field of 3D printing. He is Editor-in-Chief of the BMC peer-review journal 3D Printing in Medicine that launched in the fourth quarter of 2015. He co-edited with Dr. Gerald T. Grant a book 3D Printing in Medicine: A Practical Guide for Medical Professionals, published in October 2017.
