This theme explores how we can engineer better biocompatible materials to support stem cell derived tissues for transplantation and repair.
Research focus: exploring applications of engineering to biological systems, in particular biomaterials for implants, tissue engineering, stem cell culture, antimicrobial and cardiovascular uses.
Research focus: addressing hearing loss and its management through basic neuroscience, pre-clinical studies and clinic applications.
Research focus: developing synthetic corneas as scaffolds for iPSC derived cells to repair damaged eye tissue.
Research focus: developing next generation biomaterials, specifically blood-material interactions, as poor interactions between blood and biomaterials leads to the failure of many medical devices including vascular grafts and stents.
Research focus: applying biomedical engineering approaches to the management and treatment of osteoarthritis.
