Jérôme Noailly holds a bachelor’s degree in physical chemistry, an Engineer’s and a master’s degree in Material Science, and a master’s degree in Acoustics. In 2002, he started a PhD on spine computational biomechanics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona (UPC), Spain, focussing on theoretical approximations in finite element modelling. In 2006, he was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship (MECNOR-518768) and worked in computational mechanobiology for cartilage tissue engineering at the AO Foundation (Davos, Switzerland) and at the Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands), including the experimental characterisation and computational analyses of fibrin gels. In 2009, he went back to Barcelona with a Marie Skłodowska-Curie reintegration grant (SEVBIOM-249210) and retook spine modelling activities at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), Barcelona, Spain. The same year, he won the Best PhD Thesis award in Engineering from the UPC. In 2010, he co-led a major European research proposal, My Spine (FP7-269909), which was funded. In 2012, in his quality as principal investigator (PI) the My Spine project, he became the head of the Biomechanics and Mechanobiology group at IBEC, being responsible for up to five contracted full-time researchers, and he seized the opportunity to expand the research of the group to the field of computational systems biology, in the framework of another European project, The Grail (FP7-278557).

 

In 2015, Jérôme relocated at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF), in the quality as PI of the Multiscale and Computational Biomechanics and Mechanobiology (MBIOMM) group (2014-SGR-1616). As a member of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) and SIMBIOSys group at UPF, he generated synergies to integrate medical image analysis and machine learning dimensions into his research. At the same time, he was consolidating the integration of computational systems biology approaches for multiscale explorations of tissues and organs. In 2016, he was awarded a Ramon y Cajal fellowship (RYC-2015-18888) from the Spanish government, and in 2019, he became Tenure-Track Associate Professor at DTIC. He is currently leading the Biomechanics and Mechanobiology Area of the Barcelona Centre for New Medical Technologies (BCN MedTech- 2017-SGR-1386) and he is the Coordinator of the European project Disc4All (H2020-IT-ETN-955735).

 

He has been supervising seven PhD theses (three to completion), and he has 110+ contributions to congresses, two book chapters and 41 articles in international journals, out which nearly 70% are in Q1 journals. He has given a total of 15 invited, keynote and plenary talks at conferences, organised by both engineering and medical societies. At UPF, he is teaching biomechanics, biomaterials and musculoskeletal system modelling, subjects that he is also coordinating. Since 2018, he is additionally coordinating the UPF bachelor’s in biomedical engineering. Internationally, he is member of the Excecutive Commitee of the Council of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB), past president of the National Spanish Chapter of the ESB, and Chair of the Student Committee of the Virtual Physiological Human Institute (VPHi).
