InterLynk scientists present their research at this year’s ESB Congress co-chaired by InterLynk researcher Renato Natal Jorge
At next week's 27th European Society of Biomechanics Congress in the beautiful city of Porto, co-chaired this year by InterLynk researcher Renato Natal Jorge from INEGI, scientists from across our InterLynk consortium, will present their latest research on innovation in biomechanics.
Taking place exclusively onsite, after a long period of COVID-related online events, researchers will finally have the chance to meet again in person at this year's ESB conference held from June 26 - 29. With more than 1.500 members, the ESB is the largest biomechanics society in Europe, and its yearly conference aims “to encourage research, disseminate knowledge and promote progress in biomechanics”.
This year’s theme “Biomechanics: Innovation, Technology, and Societal Impact” reflects well one of the principal aims of our InterLynk project, namely to improve the life of people with musculoskeletal injuries and diseases, by developing innovative technologies to support the regeneration of damaged tissue.
In this spirit, InterLynk researchers will present some of their progress at this year’s ESB conference. In particular, Prof. Natal, will be chairing a session on “Advance Computing for Biomechanics” and co-lead another one on “Meta-Biomaterials”. Prof. Marco Parente (INEGI) will present research on biphasic calcium phosphate bone scaffolds in a session on 3D printing in biomedicine as well as a poster on a computer modelling approach to design a large mandibular defect. Further involved in this research were InterLynk scientists Natacha Rosa (INEGI), S.M. Olheiro (UAVR), P.M.C. Torres (UAVR), Renato Natal (INEGI), Ana Rita Reis (INEGI), Sara Checa (Charité) & Vincenzo Orassi (Charité), who will be presenting a separate poster on “Mechanobiological Computer Modeling Of Mandibular Fracture Healing”.
