This website highlights collaborative, student-led research projects from the Mechanics and Modeling of Orthopaedic Tissues Laboratory at Bucknell University*. It also includes some learning projects, activities, and other fun stuff from the Bucknell classroom. The lab is led by Prof. Ben Wheatley (he/him/his).
If you are interested in joining the lab, check out the “What is research?” page, then shoot Prof. Wheatley an email that includes a sentence or two on why you are interested in doing research in the MMOT lab. We are happy to invite prospective students to our weekly lab meeting.
*We would like to respectfully acknowledge and recognize responsibility to the original and current caretakers of this land, water and air: the Susquehannock peoples and all of their ancestors and descendants, past, present and future. Today this meeting place is home to many Indigenous peoples from all over the world, including Bucknell faculty, students, and staff. We hope that our presence and work honors those caretakers of this homeland.
