  • New Frontiers in Injury Biomechanics - Brain Injuries & Biomechanics

    The Virginia Tech – Wake Forest University Center for Injury Biomechanics and School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences will host the Advanced Technologies and New Frontiers in Biomechanics Symposium on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 in Arlington, VA.

    The symposium is a one-day, all-day conference that showcases research and recent updates on injury biomechanics topics. This year’s meeting will focus on Brain Injuries & Biomechanics.

    The symposium is an excellent opportunity to see advances in injury biomechanics as they apply to protecting people. Some examples of this years’ presentations include:

    • Military Helmets - Design and Sensor Development
    • Biomechanical Modeling of Blast Induced TBI and Injury Prevention
    • Brain Injury Risk Functions and Brain Injury Prediction using Linear and Rotational Acceleration
    • Neuropsychological Outcomes, Neuroimaging and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
    • Biomarkers for TBI, Acute Cellular Cues and Chronic Behavioral Outcomes
