The Laboratory of Anatomy, Biomechanics and Organogenesis LABO has four missions: Education, Research, Clinics and Logistics. Education: Our LABO teaches anatomy to students of various programs, including medicine, dental sciences, veterinary sciences, physical therapy, occupational therapy, bioengineering, sports, nursing, pharmacy, medical biology and arts. Moreover, LABO members also teach human embryology. Most of the classes are scheduled in the first three years of studies. However, some post-graduate courses of clinical anatomy are also part of our duties. Each year, more than 1000 hours of anatomy classes are taugth by LABO to about 4000 students. Research: The LABO is active in several fields thanks to its multidisciplinary staff and expertise: Biomechanics, Anatomy, Organogenesis, Veterinary Sciences and Legal Medicine. State-of-the-art equipment is available. Clinics: The Center for Functional Evaluation (or CFE) organised by LABO offers patients, and their therapists, all services for following-up of locomotor and gesture disabilities linked to a variety of disorders (orthopeadics, neurology, etc). Clinical research is also performed at LABO. Biomechanics: The LABO has a long tradition in biomechanics and functional anatomy. We strongly believe that the kind of research we performed is unique thanks to a blend of expertises covering all required aspects; from anatomy, clinics, technological development and quality project management.
