Description

One of the research focuses of the lab is the mechanics of structural soft tissues of the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems.

Projects in this area span from the molecular to the cellular and tissue level. We take a combined experimental/computational approach to elucidate structure-function relationships in these tissues and to understand how their mechanical functions are altered in injury and disease.
