Joseph Wallace Teaching Responsibilites

Professor Wallace joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at IUPUI in the Fall semester of 2010. Since that time, he has taught undergraduate and graduate course in the cirriculum associated with general mechanical principles applied to biomedical applications, and more specific course in bone mechanics and mechanobiology. Below is a list of courses taught with general information about each.

BME 24101 and BME 24300: Introductory Biomechanics Lecture and Lab (note: this was a single course, BME24100, prior to Fall 2019), Courses taught each Fall semester.:
The lecture portion of this course uses didactic lecture material to introduce students to the principles of mechanics and how these concepts apply to musculoskeletal tissues. General course topics for BME 24101 include:
BME 24300 uses laboratory experiments to introduce students to the principles of mechanics and how these concepts apply to musculoskeletal tissues. Students will also explore ethical issues associated with animal use in biomedical research. Experiments include:
BME 54400: Musculoskeletal Biology and Mechanics (Course taught every other Spring semester):
This course covers topics relevant to skeletal tissues (bone, tendon, ligament, cartilage and meniscus) including skeletal morphology, physiology, cell biology, development, adult osteogenesis, tissue mechanics, mechanical adaptation, failure (fracture), and fracture fixation. General topics include:
BME 59500: Engineering Analysis of Tissues (Course taught every other Spring semester):
This course will cover the principles of a number of characterization methods used to assess the quantity and quality of tissues. The course will primarily focus on musculoskeletal tissues, although techniques are relevant to other tissues as well. General topics include:
