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. 

Please refer to our research pages for more information about ongoing projects.



2018-May: Frida Bengtsson presented her Master thesis titled "Prediction of fracture propagation in human femur using the Finite Element Method". Congratulations on a very well done project!

2018-April: We welcome Catrin Rodenberg from the Technical University of Munich. She will be working on mechanically testing composites of CalciumSulphate/hydroxyapatite and bone as exchange student.

2018-March: We welcome Meral Husein and Karin Yip, who will be doing a joined Master's Thesis Project "Using Deep Learning to Assess Fracture Risk from Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptometry Images"!

2018-March: Therese Johansson and Jenny Tiliander presented their Master thesis related to developing a statistical shape model of the pelvis. Well done and congratulations!

2018-February: Hannicka Sahlstedt presented her Master thesis related to developing statistical shape models for use in pediatric patients. Well done Hannicka!

2018-January: We welcome Isabella Silva Barreto and Adam Urga from Nanoscience and Biomedical Engineering in Lund. They will work on different Master thesis projects related to unraveling the effect of mechanical loading during ebryonic bone development and mineralization.

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.
