The Council is the world’s leading professional body dedicated to biomechanics – a field that studies the structure and function of the mechanical aspects of biological systems.
Professor Bull, head of Imperial College London’s Department of Bioengineering and its Centre for Blast Injury Studies, focuses on the effects of sports and injuries from blasts on the body’s joints.
He has helped develop better physical treatments for injured rowers and cricketers, reduce the effects of blasts on military personnel, and understand how age-related diseases affect joints.
He said: “I am immensely proud to have been elected to the World Council of Biomechanics in recognition of my research, but also, I would like to think, in recognition of the broader excellence in biomechanics research at Imperial… Continue reading.
