The research group led by Prof. 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."
