Structure and function of joints

Course

Description

Skeletal stability and motion are determined by the functional anatomy of our joints. Structure, organization and shape of bones, cartilage, tendon and ligament are thereby coupled to their mechanical function. At different length scales (from cell to tissue to joint), mechanotransduction plays a crucial role. Within and across these length scales, this course couples structure to function, and aims at explaining the unique properties of our skeleton in motion during health and disease.
