C. Forbes Dewey's research interests are reflected in the more than 150 peer-reviewed papers and patents and an equivalent number of invited talks and lectures. His current research interests are in the role of the glycocalyx in cell mechanotransduction in response to fluid shear stress and in the scalable computation of very large ensembles of biological pathways.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers paper, “The dynamic response of vascular endothelial cells to fluid shear stress,” J. Biomech. Eng. 1981; 103: 165-197, has been cited in 500-plus peer-reviewed references. He is on the editorial advisory board of Telemedicine and the IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, and is a frequent reviewer for the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and many of the leading technical journals in his fields.
He is a founding fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, a fellow of the American Physical Society, an inaugural fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society, and has been listed in “Who’s Who in America” for the past 25 years. He was recently elected as an International Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the U.K.
