Research groups enable scientists to address current and pressing issues in their fields and to establish innovative lines of work. The interdisciplinary research group "The dynamics of the spine: mechanics, morphology and motion for a comprehensive diagnosis of low back pain" aims to discover fundamentally new insights into low back pain with implications for diagnosis and therapy. To this end, the consortium brings together researchers in biomechanics, orthopedics and trauma surgery, exercise and movement sciences, anesthesiology, and psychology. ZIB contributes expertise in mathematics and computer science, thus consolidating its long-standing cooperation with the Berlin Charité in a further research alliance. The spokesperson of the research group is Prof. Dr. Hendrik Schmidt, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
