SICB Division of Comparative Biomechanics (DCB)

On this page:


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 prestigious Carl Gans Award can be given in two contexts: (1) for an outstanding young investigator in the field of biomechanics, or (2) for a significant contribution to the literature (book, research paper, or other) on biomechanics by a member of SICB at any career stage.  
To nominate yourself or others 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.
