Bio-engineering the Future
Improving quality of life through novel healthcare technologies - Creating advanced medical solutions through innovative biomaterials.
Multi Functional Biomaterials
Structural Tissue Scaffolds
Our primary aim is to develop advanced porous structures with optimised mechanical properties and biological functionality.
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.
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.
Providing Insight To Injury
Using advanced virtual reality systems to gain insight into digital representations of biological systems .
