Current Research

Research in the Weiss Biomechanics Lab focuses on the development and application of experimental and computational techniques to the study of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular cells, tissues and organs. A central theme of our approach to research is the use of multidisciplinary techniques to address research questions that would be impossible to investigate using approaches in a single technical discipline. Our laboratory also leads the development and support of the FEBio software suite (Finite Elements for Biomechanics, www.febio.org). Active Grants: Targeting Collagen Mechanical Damage using Collagen Hybridizing Peptides (1R01AR071358) FEBio: Finite Elements for Biomechanics (PI; NIH/NIGMS #R01 GM083925) Neovessel Guidance in Angiogenesis (R01HL131856) Mechanical Regulation of Vascular Growth and Remodeling (R01AR069297) Population-Based Shape and Biomechanical Analysis of Hip Pathoanatomy (Co-i: NIH/NIBIB R01EB016701)
