Orthopaedics Biomechanics Research Laboratory
The Biomechanics Laboratory works on:
- The testing of instrumentation and prosthetics for implant;
- Basic research on the biomechanics of human joints
- Stabilization of the spine
Current projects include perfecting surgical procedures for fractures in the hand, in the spine, in the knee, and in the ankle. The laboratory has given special attention to the study of the intervertebral disc and methods of retarding disc degeneration and disc failure.
The Department of Orthopaedics at Emory is currently seeking applications for a faculty position in biomechanics. Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in mechanical or biomechanical engineering. For more details, please visit the Emory careers website and search for "73336BR".
