Biomechanics is a very active area of research in the department. Research laboratories are using sophisticated computational mechanics and experimental techniques to understand the biomechanical mechanisms of bone degeneration, musculoskeletal disorders, sports biomechanics, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary/respiratory disorders, ocular disease and tissue regeneration. Biomechanics research spans multiple scales from cells/molecules to whole body systems and includes traditional and emerging areas such as mechanobiology and mechanotransduction.
