Welcome to the Terry Research Laboratory

The Terry Research Laboratory is located in the Walter Scott Engineering Building (SEC) room 360 in UNL’s Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering. The objectives of the TRL are to:

  • Solve essential biomedical challenges through exceptional research and engineering
  • Provide industry-relevant research opportunities for UNL engineering students
  • Collaborate with local primary education to enhance K12 interest in STEM

Our expertise is in:

  • Medical therapeutics, devices, and surgical tools
  • Noninvasive, ambulatory biosensors
  • Biomechanical behavior of tissues and organs
  • Commercial applications of biomedical technology

Meet the researchers!

To accomplish the above objectives in these areas of expertise, the TRL has significant research and development tools for rapid prototyping, fabrication, and testing of biological materials. We have rich partnerships with world-class surgeons and medical personnel through our collaboration with the UNL East Campus, CAST, and UNMC.
