Spotlight on Kristiaan D'Aout

Posted on: 30 October 2019 | Category: Spotlight on...

Join our conversation with Dr. Kristiaan D'Aout, based in the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease at the University of Liverpool. Kristiaan works in the field of human locomotion and has been part of a wide variety of research projects, ranging from investigating how our gait changes as we age to looking into what kind of shoes aid or impede our health. Find out his work, and his predictions for the future of biomechanics.


Biomechanics: Moving with the Times

Posted on: 30 October 2019 | Category: Science explained

If you consider biomechanics in its simplest terms, it’s the application of mechanics to living organisms. As a research discipline, it draws on techniques from physics, engineering, and anatomy to understand how living organisms move about (or manage to remain stable!) It does so by analysing their motions and the forces at work. Often, this is perceived as the analysis of the stresses, movements and pressures exerted on biological (often human) joints. In reality though, biomechanics covers everything from the bending of a human knee; to the processes involved when a spider weaves its web to how a plant draws water from its roots. If it’s alive, and it moves, there will be a scientist somewhere using the principles and practices of biomechanics to better understand it.

Career Development Awards Support Promising Postdoctoral Researchers

Posted on: 30 October 2019 | Category: Blog

Awardees receiving their certificates

There is an inherent paradox in the career pathway of aspiring principal investigators. Progression from being a postdoctoral researcher to an independently funded investigator is an intensively competitive process. The one thing that can significantly increase the chances of success is demonstrable experience of working as an independent researcher and securing funding. However, as most PDRAs work on projects awarded to more senior scientists, such experience is very hard to come by.
