Congratulations to Linda for successfully defending her doctoral thesis «Clinical and functional outcomes 2 years after ACL repair and InternalBrace ligament augmentation in comparison with ACL reconstruction and healthy controls». Including her Master's thesis, Linda spent almost five years with us. We are therefore reluctant to let her go, but we are glad that we will still be able to meet her at lunch in the future. We wish you all the best for your new role at the Children's Hospital.
Congratulations to Franzi, who finished and passed her master thesis with the title "Difference in gait kinematics and kinetics between patients 1 year after total hip or knee arthroplasty and healthy controls". We are very glad that she will be staying with us for at least another year as part of a new research project.
Congratulations to Annika for successfully finishing her Master thesis "Relationship between patient-reported, clinical, and functional outcomes in patients 2 years after augmented ACL repair and after ACL reconstruction".
Congratulations to Jeremy for successfully defending his doctoral thesis "Influence of additional weight carrying on load-induced changes in glenohumeral translation in patients with rotator cuff tear – an experimental glenohumeral simulator study". After an intense PhD, Jeremy may now enjoy a well-deserved vacation.
Welcome to our new study assistant Davina, who is going to assist in our "RoLSSroice" spine project funded by the SNF.
Congratulations to Eleonora for successfully defending her doctoral thesis "Influence of Additional Weight Carrying on Load-induced Changes after Rotator Cuff Tears – an In Vivo Study". Eleonora followed up her defense with a delicious Italian brunch held at our lab. Now, Eleonora may enjoy her well deserved vacation!
Welcome to our new team member Selma Belan, who joins the group to study patients with rupture of the mediopatellofemoral ligament.
Congratulations to Simon for successfully defending his doctoral thesis "Dose-response relationship of in vivo ambulatory load and mechanosensitive cartilage biomarkers: the role of age and tissue health". Simon graduated summa cum laude and will remain in our team for another year as a postdoc. Heureka!
Congratulations to Annalena for successfully finishing her Master thesis with the title "The Effect of Muscle Fatigue on the Posture of Patients with symptomatic Lumbar Spinal Stenosis". On top of her Master thesis, Annalena has successfully prepared and presented a conference abstract during the annual meeting of the Swiss Society for Spinal Surgery in Visp.
Congratulations to Lucien after the successful defence of his thesis with the title "Association between pre- to 3-month postoperative changes in patient reported outcome measures, gait and lower limb alignment induced by total knee arthroplasty".
Congratulations to Miriam Schönbächler for successfully finishing her thesis on "Reliability of resting serum concentration of cartilage oligomeric matrix protein and the effect of pre- sample physical activity considering the compliance to pre-sample physical activity restrictions".
Welcome to our new research intern and master student Maxine Gygax, who joins the "RoLSSroice" study team to investigate patients with lumbar spinal stenosis.
Congratulations to Petros & team for the publication of their latest paper on "Distal femoral osteotomy for the valgus knee: indications,
complications, clinical and radiological outcome" in Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery!
Research meeting in Ulm: Together with our project partners from the Department of Spine Surgery at the University Hospital Basel and the Institute for Biomechanics at ETH Zurich, we met with colleagues at the Institut für Unfallchirurgische Forschung in Ulm to discuss opportunities for collaborations.
Welcome to our new master student Leon Schooff, who is investigating the association between gait biomechanics and the quality of articular cartilage within the MechSens project.
Welcome to our new master student Franziska Schmitter, who is investigating gait biomechanics in patients with osteoarthritis after total knee- and hip endoprosthesis.
Welcome to our new master student Mark Degenhardt, who overtakes the study administration of the CAT study at the Bethesda outpatient clinic. For his MSc thesis, Mark will investigate inter-joint coupling of the lower extremity in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
