Laura Baumgartner graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich, Switzerland with a Bachelor in Human Movement Sciences and a Master in Biomechanics. Focusing on a career in injury biomechanics, she got first research experience in the field of trauma biomechanics and accident reconstruction at the working group on accident mechanics (AGU) in Zürich, Switzerland. In 2016, she got accepted as a PhD-student at the Research Group for Computational Biomechanics of BCNMedTech. The thesis focuses on coupling biomechanics and mechanobiology to investigate microtrauma-processes within the human intervertebral disc on a multiscale level.
