Common Lab

The Common Lab is located in 1099 Valley Life Science Building.

The goal of The Common Lab is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations among senior investigators, postdocs, graduate students and undergraduates from biology, biophysics, engineering, bioengineering, mathematics and computer science.

The Common Lab will house:

  1. Core equipment for the new biomechanics teaching laboratory
  2. Research stations for conducting original research
  3. Office and research space for visiting investigators
  4. Research space for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduate researchers

The Common Lab will allow acquisition and analysis of biomechanical and physiological data by using the following equipment:

  1. Muscle lever
  2. EMG for muscle activation
  3. Force platforms for terrestrial locomotion studies
  4. 3D kinematics analysis system, with high-speed video cameras
  5. O2 and CO2 measurement systems
  6. Materials testing instrument
  7. Wind tunnel
  8. Water flume
  9. Particle-image velocimetry flow visualization systems for use in air, water and sand, and planar laser-induced flourencense system for mass-transort studies of fluid-borne materials 10. IR imaging camera and spectroradiometer
