Welcome

Welcome on the website of the Laboratory of Anatomy, Biomechanics and Organogenesis (in short, "the LABO"). We are located at the Faculty of Medicine of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (or ULB) in Belgium.

The LABO has four missions: Education, Research, Clinics and Logistics.

A short description is given below. More detailed information are available from the menu on the right.

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.

Logistics

The LABO is taking part in the organisation of various structures and events (links are found below):

Spring 2018. Bruno Bonnechère published a book entitled "Serious Games in Physical Rehabilitation, from theory to practice" (154 p, Spinger international.

April 2018. LABO work on 3D modelling and Neanderthal simulation was part of a TV5 movie called "Qui a tué Néandertal" (Who killed Neanderthal?) featuring Tara Chapman and Serge Van Sint Jan.
