Every year, we host a biomechanics symposium to bring together academics, researchers and healthcare professionals to discuss the latest developments in biomechanics, orthopaedics and related areas.
14th Bath Biomechanics Symposium
This year's symposium took place on 17 September 2018 and focused on the topic From micro- to multi-scale modelling: state of the art in MSK biomechanics.
Since 2005, we've welcomed distinguished guest speakers to present and debate a wide range of topics.
