The Promising Scientist award is designed to acknowledge people who have performed superior biomechanics research early in their career. It entails a certificate and a monetary award of US$ 5000 for scientific purposes, such as visiting another research group to collaborate on a project. The competition is held each year in which there is an ISB-conference. The winner of the award is expected to give a 30 min. plenary presentation over the recent studies that have contributed to the award at the ISB-congress of the same year.

Requirements: To be eligible for the award, a candidate must (1) be a member of the ISB, (2) be post-doctoral but not more than 5 years. Each candidate must submit his or her full curriculum vitae, identify at least two first author full articles in peer reviewed scientific journals that he or she has written in a single area of Biomechanics, and provide interpretative summaries describing the contribution of each article. Applications for the award are to be sent to the Jury chairman. Please send your applications to ISB Awards Officer, Prof Catherine Disselhorst-Klug (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by February 28, 2017. Additionally, please download the PSA tick-box questionnaire here, answer the questions and send it back to the ISB Awards Officer.

    Abstract deadline for the 8th World Congress on Biomechanics is coming up on December 19th. Looking forward to learning about the latest biomechanics in Dublin!

    Triceps pressdown and huge lat activation and development. If you have time, or anyone else please, looking for views on the biomechanical actions of the lats in the triceps pressdowns. As of the last 2 years have a new pressdown in my gym, and noticed the extreme pump in the lats in this exercise, and so development.



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