$380,978: NSF Biomechanics and Mechanobiology (BMMB)

Role of Mechanical Forces Axial Torsion and Flexure in Chick Embryos
Principal Investigator: Ashok Ramasubramanian, associate professor of mechanical engineering; Senior Personnel: Takashi Buma, associate professor of electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering and director of biomedical engineering; Kristin Fox, professor of chemistry; and Joel Lefever, visiting assistant professor of mechanical engineering

Awarded through NSF’s Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) funding mechanism, faculty and undergraduate researchers will study a combined experimental and computational approach to determine the forces driving flexion and torsion, using the chick embryo as the experimental model, with heavy emphasis on undergraduate research training.
