Falk Mersmann

Falk Mersmann is the head of the research group "Muscle-Tendon Plasticity and Adaptation“ at the Department of Training and Movement Sciences of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany.

His research focuses on the responses of the muscle-tendon unit to mechanical loading from the processes of mechanotransduction to structural and morphological remodelling. A particular interest lies in the balance of muscle and tendon properties and its relation to tendon overuse injury.

Falk studied Sports Science at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and received his doctorate in 2016 for his work on muscle and tendon adaptation in adolescent athletes. For his research on muscle-tendon plasticity and interaction, Falk was honored with the Special Award for Junior Scientists by the Leibniz-Kolleg Potsdam. He is author or co-author of more than 45 peer review articles and is a reviewer for more than 15 international journals.
