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.

New for 2019 - IBRC Human Anatomy and Injury Short Course

Preceding the 15th Annual Injury Biomechanics Symposium, the Human Anatomy and Injury short course will provide interdisciplinary instruction of human gross functional anatomy and anatomy-based injury biomechanics taught in one of the most diverse testing facilities in the country.

Featured topics of the course include: anatomical basis of injuries, skeletal trauma, imaging modalities, injury mechanisms and analyses, and experimental research. Emphasized body regions will include: head, neck, back, thorax, abdomen, and upper and lower extremities.

Attention all injury biomechanics researchers! The Call for Abstracts for the 15th 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-threating 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 two nights of hotel stay at the Blackwell Hotel.

Deadline for submissions is February 4th, 2019!
