to continue their education beyond the M.S. degree are encouraged to do so
in the Ph.D program offered through the Biomedical Engineering Graduate
Group.
Research interests from faculty within the department are
musculoskeletal modeling, computer simulation of multi-joint and
multi-muscle systems, biomechanical analysis of gait and running, injury
prevention, basic muscle mechanics and optimization of gross human
movement. Close interactions exist with other faculty from Engineering,
Physiology, Vet. Medicine and the Medical School. Students are encourage
to conduct cross-disciplinary research. Teaching Assistantship positions
