Biomechanics and mechanobiology

Biomechanics employs the principles of mechanics to investigate the effects of energy and forces in biological systems. Biomechanics at the University of Melbourne embraces a wide range of scales, from whole body structure and function, to cellular and nano-processes, in a multidisciplinary research effort toward improving health and wellbeing. Our research speacialisations have a major focus on musculoskeletal modelling, injury, orthopaedics, cell biomechanics and biomaterials.
