Biomedical Engineering Research Group

The Biomedical Engineering Research Group was created in 2017 within the framework of the Biomaterials and Medical Devices Research Program – BioCity Turku. The group operates at the premises of Turku Clinical Biomaterials Centre-TCBC and investigates the mechanics of implant materials, implant fixation and implant-tissue interfaces with a special emphasis on Finite Element analysis. The group has close collaboration with academic and industrial partners in Finland and worldwide.
