Corey Neu is the Donnelly Family Endowed Associate Professor in mechanical engineering. His research focuses on multiscale biomechanics and mechanobiology of soft tissues with a special emphasis on connective and cardiac tissues, making use of advanced magnetic resonance imaging and optical/atomic force microscopy-based techniques, to understand development, disease and regeneration in tissues and cells. Neu earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Brown University and a PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of California, Davis. He also served as a postdoctoral researcher in cell and molecular biology at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. He joined CU Boulder in 2015.
