Laboratory Overview

Multi-Scale Tissue Biomechanics Laboratory
Room: ENG 230, 110 Cummington Street, Boston, MA 02215

The Multi-Scale Tissue Biomechanics Laboratory was founded in 2006 within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University. The lab includes a fully equipped wet lab (about 800 square feet) with state-of-the-art instruments and facilities for mechanical testing, tissue/cell culture, histology study, optical microscopy, and sample preparation and storage. Katherine Zhang’s lab space also includes a computational area (about 250 square feet) equipped with PC and workstations for image processing, general computing, finite element analysis, and user subroutine development.
