The research group led by Prof. Domionik Göddeke, Prof. Miriam Mehl (Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems) and Prof. Oliver Röhrle (Institute for Modeling and Simulation of Biomechanical Systems) investigated computer-based modeling of the human musculoskeletal system. This research is part of project networks 5 and 7 of the Cluster of Excellence Data-Integrated Simulation Science and was also supported by the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. Aaron Krämer, a doctoral student at IANS, is also involved in the project.
For Prof. Göddeke, working in an interdisciplinary team offers far-reaching advantages, but it also presents a challenge:
"Many scientific fields are becoming so specialized that no one can keep up with all the mathematics, calculations and biomechanical models needed to solve these problems."
