The International Society of Biomechanics Awards committee, headed by Prof Alberto Leardini, is delighted to announce that they were able to fund the following travel awards to our student members - 

Matching Dissertation Grant - 3 awardees

International Travel Grant - 2 awardees

Congress Travel Grant - 17 awardees

The ISB would also like to thank all of the committee members who give up their time to be able to assess all applications in a fair and transparent manner.

Please see the Student Grants Section of the website for more information on the available grants, how to apply and the important application deadlines.

Providing support for student travel is one of the key areas of student support provided by the ISB. We know that this makes a big difference to students and their learning outcomes - please read the reports from previous recipients available in the March 2019 ISB Now for some of the great work that is supported by these travel grants.

    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.
