OSU Injury Biomechanics Research Center

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

The IBRC 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.

Congratulations to all of our IBRC students that graduated yesterday from The Ohio State University!! We are especailly proud of Dr. Angela Tesny and Dr. Gretchen Baker for finishing their PhDs and being outstanding students that we were honored to work with. Congratulations also goes to Carla Goldsmith, Davey Stamper, and Luke Bolte for finishing their UG degrees.

In October, we conducted a unique fuselage drop test with post-mortem human passengers onboard in order to validate virtual engineering models for an ongoing Federal Aviation Administration program. Now we've finally been cleared to share the recap video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwaLsrH319g
