Research area

Biomechanics


Research into the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular and musculoskeletal diseases. Expertise covers such areas as biomechanics, mechano-biology and tissue engineering. 

Project examples:

  • The role of gap junctions and mechanical loading on mineral formation in a collagen-I scaffold seeded with osteoprogenitor cells
  • Multi-scale design of biomaterials – in-situ cell-matrix mechanics in tendon fascicles
