Introduction

Prof. Dr. Annegret Mündermann has taken her role as Head Functional Biomechanics in the Orthopedics and Traumatology Hospital at the University of Basel in 2012. She received a graduate degree in Mathematics and Sports Sciences from Universität Konstanz, Germany, and her Ph.D. in Medical Science/Biomechanics from the University of Calgary, Canada, where she was awarded the Chancellor’s Graduate Medal for her dissertation. Dr. Mündermann then moved to California where she conducted osteoarthritis research at Stanford University. In 2010, she received her Venia Legendi (Habilitation). in Movement Science at Universität Konstanz, Germany, and in 2016 her Venia Docent (Umhabilitation) in Sports Science at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Dr. Mündermann is a member of the following professional organizations: Orthopaedic Research Society and the International, American, Canadian and German Societies of Biomechanics. Since 2008, Dr. Mündermann also works as a consultant for scientific writing projects with customers in New Zealand, Canada, United States, Germany, and Switzerland.
