The mission of the BioMechanics Of Soft Tissues (BioMOST) division is to contribute to the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the soft tissue structures in the human body by drawing upon principles in engineering mechanics. The division employs biomechanical experimentation, mathematical modeling, and computational simulations to address issues of interest in the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems.
