18 September 2023 – Thematic Symposium

“Integrative biomechanics:

Advancing knowledge and technology from molecular to organ level”

The thematic symposium will focus on integrative biomechanics, which uses methods and tools in order to address fundamental and clinical problems throughout a multiscale approach, capable of considering the interaction of different scales of investigation.
In detail, integrative biomechanics entails the development of multi-scale and multi-organ, dynamic, interoperable, modular investigations, capable of accurately describing the individual patient patho-physiology, spanning different anatomical scales, from the molecular to cell, tissue, organ and systems level. Applications can range from the development of new biomechanical knowledge to the creation of cutting-edge technologies and approaches for health and wellbeing.
