Bioengineering PDRA Seminar by Sheetal Inamda & David Shepherd
Date: Tuesday 4 July 2023 12:00 - 12:30
Location: SEMS Seminar Room & MS Team
Sheetal Inamda's project is about understanding how the collagen network in cartilage contributes to the tissues mechanical properties both in health and disease. More specifically, I utilise small angle X-ray scattering techniques combined with in-situ mechanics to probe the complex nanoscale mechanisms within the tissue. This combined methodology provides real time information into how the collagen fibrils behave under tissue level loading.
Keywords: Cartilage, Collagen, Small angle x-ray diffraction (SAXD), Nanomechanics, Multi-scale modelling, Biomechanics
David Shepherd's project is about Calcium Phosphates and the way substituted ions can effect the biological response. I also have an interest in studying collagen scaffolds and the ways these can be manipulated to produce novel structures incorporating biomolecules.
Keywords: Calcium Phosphates, Cell Culture, Collagen Scaffolds
