S R Lubkin
Sharon Lubkin models mechanical problems
in soft tissues - morphogenesis, biomechanics, transport, mechanobiology, drug
delivery, and tissue engineering. She has worked in several other areas of
biological modeling, primarily in complementary collaboration with experimental
biologists. Her research is partially funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. She is always
interested in new collaborations with biologists and medical researchers, and
usually has opportunities for graduate students who are strong in applied
mathematics or biomedical or mechanical engineering, and who want to learn how
to model what tissues do.
Dr. Lubkin is a Professor in the NCSU department of Mathematics, and is an associate faculty member of the NCSU/UNC department of Biomedical Engineering. She is affiliated with the Center for Research in Scientific Computing and the Center for Quantitative Sciences in Biomedicine. Her advisees have been in various graduate programs: Biomathematics, Applied Mathematics, Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
She is active nationally and internationally. She is the SIAM representative to the Joint Committee on Women in Mathematics (2017-9). She was Publications Chair of the Society for Mathematical Biology (2004-2016) and also served (1998-2002) on its Board of Directors.
Did you know that NCSU has more research funding in the mathematical sciences than MIT, Cal Tech, Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, Princeton, and NYU? We currently rank #3 in the US. If you exclude universities with a medical school, we are #1.
