Prof. Tamar Brosh, PhD, Head of the Department of Oral Biology
An engineer and in charge of The Dental Biomechanics Laboratory.
My research includes determination of the mechanical properties of dental materials as well as the mechanical behavior of dental structures. These are done in the lab by in vivo and in vitro experiments involving mechanical measurements. I have collaborations with the clinical departments of TAU Dental School as well as other professions such as orthopedic surgeons. In addition, I collaborate with the occupational therapy department where we developed a modified reliable dexterity test for characterizing the manual dexterities of dental students that were the basis of developing training tools for improving students' capabilities quickly and efficiently.
