Research in biomechanics is conducted within the two research groups experimental biomechanics and computational biomechanics, further detail on current research and research focus is provided in the respective webpages of the research groups as well as the Interfacultary Laboratory for Micro- and Nanomechanics of Biological and Biomimetical Materials.

Mission Statement:

Biomechanics research at ILSB aims to advance knowledge and understanding in structure-function, i.e. mechanics, relationships biological tissues with the aim to uncover fundamental mechanisms, predict mechanical behavior and to provide novel targets for diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in patients at need.
