Biomechanics

biomechanics research

Our biomechanics research groups focus on a wide range of human-health-related topics, integrating cutting-edge research in mechanics with cell and tissue biology across many scales in time and space. Examples range from understanding soft tissue damage around joints and the brain to analyzing complex, patient-specific cardiovascular flows to enhancing patient care and life quality through advanced robotic devices, wearable sensors, movement models, and neural interfaces.

Our students and faculty work in dynamic, interdisciplinary teams that often stretch across fields, drawing in advances in mechanics, computer vision, neuroscience, computational science, cell biology, and medicine.
