GBMA PhD award 2019

The GBMA award 2019 for the best PhD Thesis in Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics has been awarded to Dr Stefania Palumbo for the Thesis entitled:

On the mechanical behavior of single-cell: from microstructural remodelling to macroscopic elasticity

The Thesis has been conducted in the framework of the Doctoral School in Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering in the University of Trento, supervised by Prof. Luca Deseri (University of Trento) and Prof. Massimiliano Fraldi (University of Napoli “Federico II”). The Thesis will be presented within the GBMA minisymposium “Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics” in the congress AIMETA 2019 (15-19 Settembre, Roma, http://www.aimeta2019.it).

The motivation for the Prize is (in Italian):

La Tesi sviluppa un modello per la meccanica cellulare e per l'interazione cellula-substrato con l'obiettivo di connettere...

Minisymposium GBMA within AIMETA 2019

Within the XXIII Congresso Aimeta di Roma, the group of Biomechanics is organising the Minisymposium:

GBMA – Theoretical and Applied Biomechanics

Theoretical and applied mechanics plays a fundamental role in understanding the behavior of biological structures in health and disease. Recent advancements, which acknowledge the essential link between mechanics and chemo-biological mechanisms in physiopathological responses, have allowed developing novel technologies to support diagnostic assessments and to optimize medical devices for improving clinical approaches. Nevertheless, advances in experimental approaches, modelling techniques and computational technologies have to be continuously pursued, in order to build up suitable modern tools for facing the renewed challenges launched by Biomechanics.

GBMA Aims

The group is composed by researchers and scientists working in the field of Biomechanics. GBMA aims to encourage, promote, and develop research and dissemination activities concerning the science of biomechanics,  as well as it aims to promote, initiate, and support cooperation and interaction with other associations and bodies, operating both on the same topics, and – since the deeply interdisciplinary nature of the addressed issues- in affine sectors. Moreover,  within the context of the activities promoted by AIMETA, GBMA encourages the knowledge transfer concerning results obtained through the methodological approaches of the theoretical and applied Mechanics towards clinical applications, biomedicine, and bioengineering.
