ABOUT THE LAB
The bio-inspired and complex materials mechanics (BCMM) lab is headed by Dr. Mirit Sharabi.
The research in our lab is focused on:
Fabrication and mechanical characterization of soft and bio-inspired composite materials
Biomechanics of soft tissues such as the intervertebral disc and cardiovascular tissues
Structure-function in complex materials
Non-linear numerical simulations of soft-tissue biomechanics
