14th annual event features keynote, ongoing research in biomechanics

More than 100 people turned out for the 14th annual Biomechanics Research Symposium at the University of Delaware STAR Campus on Friday, May 12. The event was hosted by the Center for Biomechanical Engineering Research, the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Delaware Rehabilitation Institute.

The program included 39 posters and 10 podium presentations organized into two tracks: cell/tissue biomechanics and rehabilitation biomechanics. Student presenters represented a range of disciplines and departments across health sciences and engineering.

“It was great to see such a diverse range of research topics presented at the symposium, covering biomechanics and biomechanical engineering at different size scales,” said Mike Santare, director and founding member of CBER.

“CBER has really grown into a multidisciplinary center involving students and faculty from a broad range of disciplines across campus.”
