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.

This morning Gretchen Baker, David Stark, and Julie Mansfield shared information about the IBRC and their research projects with the Central Ohio American Society of Safety Professionals (CO ASSP). It was great to chat with such a diverse range of industry members. Thanks for having us!

IBRC had two talks at today’s IRCOBI meeting in Athens Greece. Dr Kang discussed his cervical spine research while Dr Bolte hit on lower spine injuries. The fun continues tomorrow with more papers and networking. #IRCOBIAthens

A very exciting IBS is underway including short oral/poster presentations from our very own IBRC students: Great job Niky, Akshara, Jon, Katie, and Laura!
