The Biomechanics and Functional Morphology Laboratory (BFML) is a research and education facility within the Faculty of Human Kinetics (FMH) and the University of Lisbon (ULisboa). It combines two areas of major international and national scientific tradition: Biomechanics and Morphological Sciences.


These two areas are dedicated to the teaching and research in Biology, Sports Science and Health Sciences. Morphology and Biomechanics are core disciplines in our undergraduate and postgraduate programs and provide an important scientific background for applications in fields such as Biology, Physical Education and Sport, Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy, among others.


The BMFL has developed an important network of collaborations with national and international reference research groups in their scientific fields, which is materialized in research projects funded (mostly under the coordination of the BMFL) and a set of doctoral or post-doctoral programs and projects.

The faculty doesn’t offer a dedicated master course in biomechanics. However, biomechanics is present and has a contribution on the master program in High Performance Sports Training.
