Hanna Isaksson conducted her doctoral studies focusing on mechanobiological modeling of bone regeneration, in a collaborative project between AO Research institute in Davos, Switzerland and Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. After obtaining her Ph.D. degree in 2007, she spent three years as a post-doc at University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio, Finland, working on experimental methods to determine bone quality in metabolic bone diseases. In 2011 she returned to Sweden for an assistant professorship at Lund University, where she now has a dual appointment in Biomedical Engineering and Orthopedics. Her biomechanics research group is focusing on functional imaging and statistical shape modeling of bone, as well as on improvement of bone quality during fracture repair. She has authored over 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers, and has been an ESB member since 2006.
