Biomechanics and mechanobiology

Biomechanics employs the principles of mechanics to investigate the effects of energy and forces in biological systems. Our research specialisations focus on musculoskeletal modelling, injury, orthopaedics, cell biomechanics and biomaterials.

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.
