Prof. Dr. habil. Annegret Mündermann Ph.D.

Head Functional Biomechanics Group

Anne previously worked at Stanford University (USA), University of Otago (New Zealand) and University of Konstanz (Germany) before moving to the University Hospital Basel to head the functional biomechanics group. Her research experience ranges from running biomechanics to cartilage mechanosensitivity in health and disease.

Dr. phil. Corina Nüesch

Associate Head Functional Biomechanics Group

Corina received her M.Sc. from ETH Zurich and her PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Basel. She has directed the Basel Functional Biomechanics Laboratory since 2015. Corina's research interests include biomechanical and neuromuscular adaptations in patients with osteoarthritis and application of pattern recognition methods for the analysis of motion and EMG data.

Dr. med. Petros Ismailidis

Research Fellow

Petros received his medical degree from the Aristoteles University of Thessaloniki Greece in 2010 and completed his dissertation in the field of knee endoprostheses at the University of Zürich in 2017. He has been working at the University Hospital of Basel since 2014 initially as a resident and since 2018, after receiving the Swiss Board Certification for Orthopaedic Surgery, as a Consultant. Petros joined the Functional Biomechanics Research Group for a full time research fellowship in 2019. Petros' research interests are muscle and balance function in patients receiving total hip or total knee arthroplasty.
