Cologne Center for Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

The Center was founded in 2013 as a scientific cooperation between the Medical Faculty of the University of Cologne and the German Sport University Cologne and is an interface between basic and clinical research with the purpose of a pragmatic translational research (“From bench to bedside and back”). The research focuses of the CCMB are musculoskeletal injuries and diseases.

The center is composed of different institutes from both universities in order to concentrate expertise and to create synergies. The research of the diverse disciplines on musculoskeletal injuries and diseases will be collated complementing each other. The Center serves as a place for cooperation and dialogue between research and clinic.
