SICB Division of Comparative Biomechanics (DCB)

On this page:




Introduction

Research of members of The Division of Comparative Biomechanics (DCB) includes experimental work, computational and physical modeling and rich biological and engineering perspectives on the taxonomic breadth of organisms (extant and fossil) and their function in the physical world.

The Division had its first organizational meeting at the annual SICB meeting in 2007 with strong support. DCB has mounted, often in collaboration with other Divisions, excellent symposia and strong presentation line ups, including from many scientists new to SICB and our robust student community.

Although the Division is relatively new, research in comparative biomechanics is not and SICB has always been an important home for such work. Several DCB awards have been developed and named for luminaries in the field.

The Carl Gans Award
The Carl Gans Award is named in recognition of Carl Gans' scientific career and editorial contributions to animal morphology, biomechanics, and functional biology.
For complete details and nominations please see the instructions linked here.

The Steven Vogel Award for the Best Student Poster in Biomechanics
The Mimi A. R. Koehl and Stephen A. Wainwright Award for the Best Student Talk in Biomechanics
Students interested in being considered for these awards should refer to the SICB BSP application guidelines page linked here.

We encourage members to encourage other scientists to join DCB. A great way to introduce people to the Society and Division is through Symposia. DCB has a strong history of excellent symposia and we encourage you to continue to submit proposals and to consider participants from outside of SICB and in diverse fields of science and engineering. Guidelines for symposium proposal preparation, and other useful sicb resources, can be found here.




Social Media

Our division has two social media accounts where the DCB officers and student/postdoc representative share up-to-date information on job opportunities, graduate student positions, professional development activities, newly published research, and other material that would be beneficial to our members. To hear about with the latest updates, please follow us on:

Also, please follow a new Working Group of the International Society of Biomechanics called Comparative Neuromuscular Biomechanics: https://twitter.com/CNBiomechanics or https://sites.psu.edu/cnbgroup/.
