Our Biomechanics group's research is focused on understanding the link between mechanics and biology in the musculoskeletal system. More specifically, our research involves biomechanics, pathologies and repair of skeletal tissues using tissue characterisation methods, imaging and computational simulation techniques. Our research has direct applications in orthopaedics, where clinicians are looking for improved methods or understanding of repair of skeletal tissues, e.g. bone, cartilage and tendons.

2017-December: Lorenzo Grassi receives a LU Innovation Exploratory Pre-seed grant. LU Innovation announced the recipients of their Exploratory Pre-seed grant 2017. Lorenzo's proposal was one of the 7 that were granted funding. The proposal will explore the clinical applicability as well as the potential for commercialization of a method for calculation of femoral strength from clinical images.

2017-December: We welcome Frida Bengtsson from Biomedical Engineering in Lund. She will conduct a Master thesis project with us, her topic is: 'Fracture propagation estimation using Finite Element Method'.

2017-December: We are happy to announce that Hanna Isaksson has been selected as a new Wallenberg Academy Fellow. This fellowship comes with a fund that enables us to further research the achilles tendon.

2017-October: We welcome Jenny Tiliander and Therese Johansson from Biomedical Engineering in Lund. They will conduct a joint Master thesis project with us, their topic is: 'generation of statistical models of shape for the human pelvis'.

2017-July: Lorenzo Grassi was awarded the best doctoral thesis in biomechanics by the European Society of Biomechanics. This gave Lorenzo the chance to present his thesis work Femoral strength prediction using finite element models during a dedicated plenary session at the 23rd congress of the European Society of Biomechanics.


2017-July: Hanna Isaksson, Lorenzo Grassi, and Anna Gustafsson attended the 23rd congress of the European Society of Biomechanics, where the latest results from our group's research were presented and discussed with the scientific community.


2017-June: Neashan Mathavan defended his thesis succesfully on June 8th. The opponent was Prof Sandra Shefelbine, Northeastern University, Boston, USA, and the supervisors Hanna Isaksson, Magnus Tägil and Stephen Hall.

2017-June: We welcome Elin Törnquist who is starting as a PhD student in the Biomechanics group. Elin will work on investigating different neutron methods that can be used to study bone, cartilage, and tendon tissue. Her project is funded by SwedNess research school.
