Welcome to the IBRC!

About Us

The Injury Biomechanics Research Center (IBRC) at The Ohio State University is a multi-disciplinary research center dedicated to investigating the relationships between human injury and physical mechanical properties.  The IBRC has completed research in the field of automobile safety for the last 15 years.  The IBRC brings together an interdisciplinary team of engineers, anatomists, anthropologists, physicians, computer modelers and technicians, who focus on both mechanisms of injury and injury thresholds of the human body. The Injury Biomechanics Research Center has the capabilities to test with both anthropomorphic test devices (crash test dummies) and post-mortem human subjects.  The IBRC works closely with several departments of Ohio State and many government and industry partners to offer one of the most diverse testing facilities in the country.

Attention all injury biomechanics researchers! The Call for Abstracts for the 16th Annual Injury Biomechanics Symposium is now available!

The mission of the Injury Biomechanics Symposium is to stimulate and reward strong injury biomechanics research among students and recent graduates.

The Symposium is a one of a kind event where research trainees can develop their presentation skills in a non-threatening environment. It brings together students and industry members, providing opportunities for
networking. This allows young researchers to form connections that have both immediate and long-term impacts on their academic and professional careers.

Students are given the choice of displaying their work in an oral or poster presentation. All accepted students will receive a travel stipend and a two-night hotel reservation at the Blackwell Hotel.

Deadline for submissions is February 7th, 2020 at 5:00 E.T.!
For more information about the Injury Biomechanics Symposium, visit the IBRC website (http://ibrc.osu.edu/symposium/).
