The School aims at delivering an Advanced Training Program in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology merging complementary bits of knowledge from different scientific & clinical fields. Lecturers will be renowned expert scientists from multidisciplinary fields, such as Experimental, Theoretical and Computational Biomechanics & Translational Mechanobiology.
Classes will focus on multidisciplinary learning skills and state-of-the-art problems of biomedical research. Basic concepts of interdisciplinary knowledge will be opened to the critical thinking of Biomechanics and Mechanobiology applications.
Final emphasis will be put on scientific and technological challenges able to foster an effective translation towards the clinical world.
The School will offer a broad context of scientific meeting in which it will be possible to discuss with Lecturers, other students and researchers. It is intended to create the optimal conditions for future synergic and multidisciplinary cooperation among different communities. Two social and cultural activities will be organized where students will meet lecturers in an informal context.
The School Organizers are University Professors, known in the international community of Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics. They collaborate themselves actively since several years both for joint research (scientific publications and conferences) and training (Master Thesis and PhD Advisor) activities and hold a broad international network. Organizers are fellow of different and complementary Institutions, ensuring the technical and bureaucratic support to efficiently managing the School and further widening the international promotion of the event.
The expected impact of the School is the creation of an international network on Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics in close connection with the Clinical World. The young participants can get access to a higher educational level and find their research line on a robust epistemological framework. New synergies are expected to face the urgent challenges connected with healthcare social problems and sustainability through integrated multidisciplinary approaches.
