Research Interests

Dr. Whyne's lab is focused on translational bioengineering research aimed at better understanding the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and developing minimally invasive technology to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disease and injury. Using an engineering approach, her team uses experimental and numerical methods, including the following:

  • in vitro and in vivo testing
  • computational modeling
  • image analysis
  • biomechanical testing
  • design and minimally invasive technology development.

Dr. Whyne's work integrates biomechanical analyses with clinical and basic science investigations of musculoskeletal injury and disease, with a final goal of translating findings into the clinic. Her work is primarily focused in the areas of skeletal metastases, spinal, lower extremity and thin bone biomechanics, image-guided surgery, and fracture fixation and healing.
