Personal profile


Dr Hanna Isaksson joined the Division of Solid Mechanics at Lund University in 2011. Since 2014, she and her group moved to join the newly formed Department of Biomedical Engineering at Lund University. Her reserach area is primarily musculoskeletal tissue biomechanics and mechanobiology. In the hard tissue area, the research focus on functional imaging and statistical shape modeling of bone, characterization of bone damage and fracture mechanisms as well as on improvement of bone quality during fracture repair. The team also extensively work on research questions related to structure function composition relationships of knee tissues and osteoarthritis, as well as understanding Achilles tendon biomechanics and mechanobiology following tendinopathy and tendon rupture.

Prior to joining Lund University, Dr Isaksson spend three years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Biophysics of Bone and Cartilage reserach group, University of Eastern Finland, working on experimental methods to determine bone quality in metabolic bone diseases, primarily osteoporosis. She obtained her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, in a collaborative project between TU/Eindhoven and the AO Research institute in Davos, Switzerland. The project focused on mechanobiological modeling of bone regeneration.
