Spanning multiple scales from cells and molecules to whole-body systems, biomechanics research includes traditional and emerging areas such as mechanobiology and mechanotransduction. Computational mechanics and experimental techniques are used to understand the biomechanical mechanisms of bone degeneration, musculoskeletal disorders, sports biomechanics, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary/respiratory disorders, ocular disease and tissue regeneration. Faculty members in the BME department with research interest in biomechanics include Profs. Ghadiali, Higuita Castro, Liu, Reilly, Walter, and Weinberg.
