Developing subject-specific models for the study of traumatic brain injury
Robert Morris University

Our research group is developing a workflow for generating subject-specific finite element head models from medical imaging data. These head models are applied to simulate blunt impact and blast loading scenarios with a goal of predicting the severity of brain injury. The model generation process includes segmenting the functional and structural regions of the brain, generating an appropriate finite element mesh, and incorporating structural details from medical imaging data. We are seeking a student who is interested in learning the steps in the workflow and developing new methods for improving the anatomical accuracy of these models.
