    Congratulations to Prof. Ralph Müller from the ETH, Zurich, who was named the 2019 Muybridge Award winner.

    The Muybridge award is the most prestigious bestowed by the Society. It’s given for career achievements in biomechanics. It is named after Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904), who was the first to use cinematography for the study of human and animal movement.

    Prof. Müller is currently a Professor of Biomechanics at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology and heads the Laboratory for Bone Biomechanics at ETH Zürich in Switzerland. The research he has completed and is currently pursuing employs state-of-the-art biomechanical testing and simulation techniques as well as novel bioimaging and visualization strategies for musculoskeletal tissues. His approaches are now often used for precise phenotypic characterization in mammalian genetics, mechanobiology as well as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

    Very well deserved award!

    We are excited to announce a new Working Group of the ISB, the Comparative Neuromuscular Biomechanics group (CNB)!

    The CNB aims to increase the visibility of comparative biomechanics and neuromechanics at the ISB, with a goal to accelerate cross-pollination between comparative and human biomechanics fields.


The ISB promotes the study of all areas of Biomechanics at the International level.
