1994 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
1987 - Theodore von Karman Medal
His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Viscoelasticity, Red Cell, Deformation and Newtonian fluid. The concepts of his Mechanics study are interwoven with issues in Bone development, Geometry, Material properties and Tension. His Viscoelasticity research includes themes of Rheology and Pipette.
His Red Cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biophysics and Optics. Within one scientific family, Richard Skalak focuses on topics pertaining to Displacement under Biophysics, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Endothelium. While the research belongs to areas of Flow, he spends his time largely on the problem of Vasomotion, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Anatomy.
His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Rheology, Biophysics, Viscoelasticity and Pressure drop. His work in Mechanics addresses subjects such as Classical mechanics, which are connected to disciplines such as Boundary value problem, Dissipation and Surface. In his work, Anatomy is strongly intertwined with Continuum mechanics, which is a subfield of Boundary value problem.
His Rheology research incorporates elements of Microcirculation, Red blood cell, Flow and Finite element method. His research on Viscoelasticity also deals with topics like
Richard Skalak mainly investigates Rheology, Mechanics, Finite element method, Biophysics and Mathematical analysis. His work in the fields of Drag, Flow and Pressure drop overlaps with other areas such as Filtration. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Vector field and Inertia.
His Biophysics research integrates issues from Nanotechnology, Vesicle, Vesicular transport protein, Pipette and Viscoelasticity. His Mathematical analysis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Trajectory, Skull, Anatomy and Kinematics. In most of his Anatomy studies, his work intersects topics such as Tight junction.
Pipette, Viscoelasticity, Biophysics, Rheology and Nanotechnology are his primary areas of study. His research integrates issues of Deformation, Viscosity and Cytoskeleton, Microfilament in his study of Pipette. His research on Viscoelasticity frequently links to adjacent areas such as Mechanics.
Richard Skalak has researched Biophysics in several fields, including Pressure drop, Pressure gradient and Actin. His Rheology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cytoplasm, Finite element method, Tension, Cytochalasin B and Microcirculation. His Nanotechnology study which covers Pseudopodia that intersects with Kinetics and Continuum mechanics.
