LAB VISION STATEMENT
The goal of the McMaster Injury Biomechanics Lab is to define comprehensive injury limits for under-studied events, body regions, and people, and translate those to clinical and industry partners in a meaningful way that can facilitate the development of better protective measures.
We do this through a rigorous scientific testing and analysis approach, with an emphasis on supporting trainees to do their best possible research and gain skills for their future careers.
