Scott L. Delp, Ph.D., is the James H. Clark Professor of Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. He is the Founding Chairman of the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford, Director of the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research, and Director of the Mobilize Center, a NIH National Center of Excellence focused on Big Data and Mobile Health. Scott is focused on developing technologies to advance movement science and rehabilitation. Software tools developed in his lab (OpenSim and Simtk.org) have become the basis of an international collaboration involving thousands of investigators who exchange biomechanical models, simulations, and data. Prior to joining the faculty at Stanford, Delp was on the faculty at Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. He has co-founded six biomedical technology companies.
