UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI
Laryngeal Biomechanics
Lab

Marrying advanced knowledge in aerospace and mechanical engineering with medical and surgical expertise. We do modeling, simulations, and device development for disorders related to the upper human airways. Our goal is to acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and disability.
