We Study Injury Biomechanics.
The focus of The Tissue Mechanics, Microstructure, and Modeling Laboratory (TM3) is to use modern imaging techniques, advanced mechanical characterization tools, and computational visualization/modeling techniques to unveil structural and functional relations of tissues at various hierarchical length scales.
We use this information to
(1) better understand injury mechanisms,
(2) optimize computational simulations of human tissues and organs, and
(3) develop injury protective systems.
