William J. Anderst, PhD
- Assistant Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
- Director, Biodynamics Lab
I am Director of the Biodynamics Laboratory, a core facility within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. Our laboratory performs in vivo motion analysis and subject-specific computational modeling to study a broad variety of musculoskeletal pathologies. Our lab performs 200-250 tests per year using the biplane radiography system and is presently supported by NIH, DOD, industry and foundation grants. I have over 20 years of experience working with biplane radiography, directing human motion analysis studies, collaborating with clinical faculty, and developing innovative analysis tools to characterize in vivo joint mechanics.
