Su Fu has passed his PhD entitled: 'The role of primary cilia in the anti-inflammatory effects of mechanical loading in cartilage'. Su was supervised by Prof Martin Knight and funded by a grant from the China Scholarship Council. He has already published one very good paper in the journal Osteoarthritis and Cartilage and has two further papers in revision/preparation. Su's work explored the effect of mechanical loading on primary cilia structure and function with particular focus on how mechanical forces regulate inflammatory signalling.
Su has now returned to China to continue his work as an orthopaedic surgeon but hopes to continue his research. We wish Su well and will miss him here at QMUL.
