2nd Inspiring Women Series with Dr. Isabelle Catellas


Hello ladies (and assorted gents)!

uOttawaWISE will be having our second awesome Inspiring Women Series speaker of the year lined up.

Dr. Isabelle Catelas received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Engineering at the University of Technology of Compiègne in France in 1995, her Master’s degree at Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal in 1997, and her Ph.D. at McGill University in 2002, the latter two in Biomedical Engineering.

Professor Catelas joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa in May 2008, with a cross-appointment at the Faculty of Medicine. As a Canada Research Chair holder (Tier II), in “Bioengineering in Orthopaedics”, her research interests include the study of implant wear particles, their biological effects and possible approaches to modulate these effects, as well as bone regeneration.

Dr. Catelas will be talking mainly about her career path, and will touch lightly on her work in the research field.
She will be speaking about various aspects of her experiences from her position as a faculty member at uOttawa, to her experience in Vienna, establishing a cell biology laboratory.

Join us Wednesday, December 5th in STE5084 (conference room) at 6:30pm for what will undoubtedly be another fantastic evening.

There will also be yummy catering from Ottawa’s own Whattasandwich!
