Biomedical Engineering Laboratory

CHHM researchers pioneered novel techniques to investigate why joints become afflicted with osteoarthritis, advance our understanding of why and how bones break and to develop, design and test novel implants to replace fractured or diseased bones and joints.

Fully equipped with state-of-the-art biomedical engineering and imaging equipment, this lab also contains a Surgical Solutions Suite to advance surgical techniques related to hip fracture, joint protection/restoration, and joint replacement surgery. The dedicated Machine Shop is used to build, customize and modify systems that simulate real life injury, the separate clean room is used for implant design and the Anatomy Prep lab with walk-in freezer is used to prepare and store of ex vivo samples or specimens.
