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.

Interested in studying the human body and how it responds to impacts in dynamic scenarios? Want to learn more about laboratory testing using data acquisition systems, high-speed video cameras, and various types of sensors? Your opportunity has arrived! The IBRC is now accepting applications for a summer REU. For more information visit http://ibrc.osu.edu/future-students-2/summer-reu-opportunity/

Dr. Yun-Seok Kang and Julie Mansfield represented the IBRC at the 2018 SAE Government/Industry Meeting. Dr. Kang presented his research on methods of delaying degradation of human brain tissue and Julie presented her research on the performance of rear-facing CRS in rear impacts. Great job guys!
