Started in October, 2006 at the Cambridge University Engineering Department, the Oyen Lab is involved with research on mechanical behavior in biological materials. Some projects have a distinct biomedical focus, with direct relevance to clinical practice, such as the long-term project examining mechanical factors in pregnancy and birth. Additional projects are basic science in orientation, including the development of characterization techniques for probing mechanical behavior of time-dependent materials with nanoindentation testing and the examination of structure-properties relationships in mineralized tissues such as bone.
