New Paper – Three-dimensional anisotropic hyperelastic constitutive model describing the mechanical response of human and mouse cervix
We proposed a new material model that captures the tension–compression asymmetric material responses and the remodeling characteristics of both human and mouse cervical tissue. We present tension-compression mechanical data, nonpregnant vs pregnant comparisons, a full 3-D statistical mechanics model, links to raw data, and material model implementation in FEBio.

Myers 2022 SURE Research Project
We enjoyed having Miccaella Lejwa in the lab this summer as a 2022 SURE Fellow! Her research focused on running computational simulations of maternal anatomy at low risk for preterm birth.
Spring-Summer 2022: In-person is back!
The members of the Myers lab have been on the move this year, attending conferences and working with collaborators. We’re so happy to see everyone in-person!
