Nebraska Biomechanics Core Facility Hosts Global Participants
Scientists and clinicians from all over the world traveled to Omaha recently for an intense five-day sumer workshop. Why? The scientists at the Nebraska Biomechanics Core Facility (NBCF) are considered experts in a certain analysis of human movement and biological systems. Their approach is unconventional and this makes them world-renowned for their research using nonlinear analysis. Individuals from Australia, Denmark, Spain and Ireland traveled to the NBCF. In addition, 12 more individuals from all over the United States were in attendance. They came from places such as the National Institutes of Health, the West Point Military Academy, and the Johns Hopkins University and the University of California San Francisco. These 18 attendees underwent a grueling schedule of lectures, hands-on training and testing from 9 to 5 p.m. each day. In the evenings, the NBCF staff hosted several social events. By hosting these types of workshops, the NBCF helps place the University of Nebraska at Omaha on the map, scientifically speaking.
