Bio-engineering the Future

Improving quality of life through novel healthcare technologies - Creating advanced medical solutions through innovative biomaterials.

Exemplar Research

Multi Functional Biomaterials

Structural Tissue Scaffolds

Our primary aim is to develop advanced porous structures with optimised mechanical properties and biological functionality.

Simulated femur hip implant

Clinical Orthopaedics and Surgical Techniques

Artificial Joint Design and Optimisation.

Working closely with Clinicians, we are optimising surgical techniques to bring direct benefits to patients undergoing total joint replacements.

Bioresorbable Materials

Tuning Material Behaviors to Enhance Biological Processes

Our primary aim is to develop advanced bone fixation devices which 'resorb' over time and are replaced by natural tissue.
