We want to increase the visibility of IWB members' science.

This repository is for the biomechanics community to have easy access to search for invited speakers (ending all-male panels), to propose IWB members as nominees for awards, to find collaborators, and more. Use the filters below to find members. We also encourage you to explore and outreach to our IWB collaborators, Black Biomechanists Association and Latinx in Biomechanix.
