Wriggling Organisms and Modeling Lab

The WORM Lab is an experimental space for research and undergraduate education at the interface of mathematics and biology.  The primary focus of our research group is the numerical, analytical, and experimental study of the locomotion of the 1mm long worm C. elegans.  

Our lab currently consists of a wet lab and a microscope dark room which houses an in-house built worm-tracking microscope as well as a Brookfield DV-III Rheometer.  Research students in the WORM Lab conduct independent theoretical and experimental investigations into the question of the biomechanics of locomotion.  For more information, see Dr. Eva Strawbridge's website.
