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.

Dr. Julie Mansfield presented some of her dissertation research looking at harness tightening procedures in CRS on Tuesday, and another work of her's and Dr. Bolte's looking at PCL injuries in proximal tibia impacts, today at the SAE WCX. She had great audiences for both and did a fantastic job.

A big round of applause goes to the awesome IBRC undergrads who presented their research at the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum yesterday. Way to go Katie Lane, Scott Stuckey, and Vincent Schreck! Kudos to everyone who braved the snow/rain/slush to support our Denman presenters.
