Curriculum Vitae

Michael Buschmann received a B. Engineering Physics from the University of Saskatchewan in 1984, and a Ph.D. in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics from the Division of Health Sciences and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University in 1992.

His postdoctoral training in cartilage microscopy and histology was then completed at the University of Bern in Switzerland in 1994.

Since 1994, Dr. Buschmann has established a multidisciplinary research
program at Ecole Polytechnique ( that focuses on the use of biomaterials to repair cartilage, meniscus and bone and to deliver plasmid DNA and small interfering RNA. Work that has been translated to the industry setting as medical devices include a biomaterial that stimulates cartilage repair and an arthroscopic instrument that maps articular cartilage function

Dr. Buschmann is Director of the FRSQ Group in Biomedical Science and Technology and has received the Innovator Prize from the Quebec Association for Industrial Research (ADRIQ), the Melville Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and an Award of Merit of the Canadian Arthritis Network of Centres of Excellence.
