The Center for Injury Biomechanics (CIB) uses a multidisciplinary approach to solving real-world biomechanics problems, combining the biomedical expertise at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center with Virginia Tech’s top-rated College of Engineering.

Our focus is on investigating injury after trauma to:

  • Develop a greater understanding of human tolerance to injury.
  • Engineer enhanced safety countermeasures.
  • Mitigate the occurrence of serious injury in society.
