Grace O'Connell, Professor

Closed (1) Biomechanics Research

Applications for fall 2021 are now closed for this project.

The O’Connell Lab is part of the Berkeley Biomechanics Laboratory (BBM), which is a core laboratory co-directed by Professors Tony Keaveny, Grace O’Connell, Lisa Pruitt, and Shawn Shadden. Keaveny, O’Connell, and Pruitt’s research is in orthopaedic biomechanics, while Shadden’s research is in cardiovascular biomechanics. In the O’Connell Lab, our primary focus is in soft tissue biomechanics and tissue engineering. We use computational and experimental approaches to understand the biomechanical function of soft tissues, such as the intervertebral disc and articular cartilage.
