Dura Layers

Quantifying Planar Stress in Soft Tissues

TM3 is investigating the deformation behavior of native cranial soft tissues to lay a scientific foundation for designing superior tissue surrogates with optimized properties, and developing a tissue engineered dura mater patch with the objective of preventing problems associated with synthetic patches which include CSF leakage and patch integration with the native tissue.

Tendon and Ligament Mechanics

TM3 is developing a constitutive model of the anterior cruciate ligament in an effort to model mechanistic changes that cannot be captured experimentally.
