Research profile

Cees Oomens is full professor in Biomechanics of Soft Tissues at the department of Biomedical Engineering (research group Soft Tissue Engineering and Mechanobiology). Currently his research is focused on damage and adaptation of soft biological tissues. A hierarchical approach is used, ranging from studies on cultured cells, tissue engineered constructs of muscle and skin, in-vivo animal studies and human studies. Theoretical models include convective and diffusive transport processes in deforming structures, and the interaction with growth, synthesis and damage development. A major application field is a study on the etiology of pressure ulcers. The goals are to develop an objective method to identify patients at risk of developing a pressure ulcer, and to develop techniques for early detection of deep tissue injury. Other application fields are the interaction of skin with devices for personal care and trans-epidermal drug delivery. 

Academic background

Cees Oomens received his MSc in Physics in 1979 from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, the Netherlands). In 1985, he obtained his PhD at the University of Twente on a study on the mechanical behavior of skin. He returned to Eindhoven to become assistant professor, and in 1990 he was appointed associate professor. From September 2009 until 2011, he was president of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel, which in 2015 presented him its Experienced Investigator Award. That same year, Cees Oomens was appointed as full professor of Biomechanics of Soft Tissues at the department of Biomedical Engineering at TU/e. Since September 2017, he is vice-dean of the department of Biomedical Engineering.
