Research Presentation Forum For the very first time the Langer Biomechanics Summer School will be introducing a special 'research presentation forum'. This unique session will be an opportunity for three handpicked MSc and PhD students/graduates to present their current research work. Each 20 minute lecture will be followed by a short Q&A session for you to further understand the implications of their findings.
