The Myers Soft Tissue Lab is in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Columbia University. Our lab characterizes the structure-function behavior of the cervix during the remodeling events of pregnancy and characterizes the mechanical properties of the eye-wall in relation to glaucoma. Research in our lab includes the mechanical testing of biological soft tissues, the biochemical analysis of tissue microstructure, and material modeling based on structure-mechanical property relationships. In collaboration with clinicians, our goal is to understand the etiologies of tissue pathology and disease. Please see our Research Page for more information on our projects.
