Join Our Lab

One goal of this laboratory is to redefine the relationship between research and teaching in a university setting. The Neuromechanics and Biomimetic Devices Laboratory will support and train postdoctoral research associates and graduate students in their role as research mentors. They will form Research Mentoring Teams together with undergraduate research students.

Graduate students using this facility are enrolled in existing MS and PhD programs from Biology, Math, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical-, Electrical-, Civil- and Computer Engineering and Psychology.

Undergraduates enrolled in independent research courses in these departments (e.g., Biology 93/193, Mech. Eng. 43) are welcome to carry out research at the BDL.
