Human Movement Sciences

The department of Human Movement Sciences performs research on the human musculoskeletal system, on the way people move, and on how human movement can be influenced in the context of sports, health, physical education and rehabilitation.

Our research is multi-disciplinary: we combine anatomy, physiology, psychology and biomechanics to understand and improve human movement. We prioritise the societal value of our research and devote ample time and attention to translation of our research findings to promote their application in practice.


The Education section of the Department of Human Movement Sciences consists of six junior teachers who develop workgroup and practical education and give the first-year HMS courses. More about Education


The research of the Human Movement Sciences department is embedded in two institutes co-initiated by the department, namely Amsterdam Movement Sciences en Institute of Brain and Behavior Amsterdam. More about our Research.
