OSU Injury Biomechanics Research Center

The Injury Biomechanics Research Center (IBRC) brings together an interdisciplinary team of engineers, anatomists, physicians, computer modelers and technicians, who focus on both mechanisms of injury and injury thresholds of the human body.

The IBRL is a site for the multi-university I/UCRC (Industry/University Cooperative Research Center) for CChIPS (the Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies). CChIPS is a joint venture with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia striving to advance the safety of children, youth, and young adults by facilitating the conduct of scientific inquiry into the causes and mechanisms of injury, and by translating these findings into commercial applications and public education programs for prevention. With the statement "Children are not small adults", CChIPS gathers industrial support to advance the knowledge of child injury mechanisms and create an international research community that seamlessly translates research into prevention.

The IBRC established and annually hosts the Injury Biomechanics Symposium. This symposium is intended to stimulate and reward strong injury biomechanics research among students and recent graduates from all over the world. The symposium delivers original biomechanics research in a forum intended to foster communication between developing and established researchers.

We are just under one week away from the 14th Annual Injury Biomechanics Symposium!
Presentation topics include: occupant kinematics, traumatic brain injury in blasts, head and neck kinematics, lower extremity injury and modeling, and surrogate structures and materials. In addition, there will be scientific talks from two guest speakers: Dr. Jeff Crandall and Dr. Duane Cronin.
The Symposium will kick-off with the Welcome Reception and Cornhole Tournament on Sunday evening, starting at 5:00pm.
