Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

Research in musculoskeletal biomechanics employs biomechanics, biomaterials, imaging, and cell and tissue engineering to the study of injury, degeneration, repair, and regeneration of orthopedic tissues such as bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and intervertebral discs.

The University of Iowa program encompasses all levels of musculoskeletal research from joints and tissues down to individual cells and molecules.
