2019 sees the launch of the Comparative Neuromuscular Biomechanics ‘Seed Group’!  The CNB is working towards establishing a new Technical Group of the International Society of Biomechanics. The CNB aims to increase the visibility of comparative biomechanics and neuromechanics at the ISB and to accelerate cross-pollination between comparative and human biomechanics fields.

The CNB is holding its inaugural symposium at the ISB-ASB 2019 Congress in Calgary: “Comparative biomechanics across organizational scales (tissues to whole body dynamics)”.  This symposium will highlight a range of comparative studies across organizational scales from tissues to integrated systems and whole-body dynamics. Speakers will present innovative research in comparative animal biomechanics and neuromechanics, highlighting the potential applications of their findings in more applied fields such as human sports science and rehabilitation, bio-inspired robotics and human-assistive devices.


  • Monica Daley (Royal Vet. College, UK) & Craig McGowan (University of Idaho) Chairs
  • Mariana Kersh (University of Illinois)
  • Spencer Lake (Washington University, St Louis, USA)
  • Natalie Holt (Northern Arizona University, USA)
  • Manny Azizi (UC Irvine)
  • Kiisa Nishikawa (NAU, USA)
  • Greg Sawicki (Georgia Tech, USA)
  • Stacey Shield (U. Cape Town, South Africa)
  • Christian Hubicki (Florida State U, USA)

In addition, a second CNB-affiliated symposium will be held at ISB-ASB 2019: “Using musculoskeletal modelling in comparative biomechanics”, Chaired by Taylor Dick (University of Queensland) & Christofer Clemente (University of the Sunshine Coast).

The CNB is hosting a business meeting on Thursday August 1st at the ISB-ASB 2019 Congress; all are welcome!  The meeting will discuss the Group’s mission, draft constitution and future symposia, among other topics.  The CNB will be seeking nominations for elected board positions later in 2019.

For information regarding the CNB, including information on symposia, the CNB board, membership and contact information please visit:

Looking forward to seeing you in Calgary!

    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.
