Dr Azevedo

Dr Helena Azevedo
MEng, PhD

Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering & Biomaterials
Molecular self-assembly, the spontaneous organization of molecules into ordered aggregates by noncovalent interactions and without external control, is of central importance to life (e.g., protein folding, formation of lipid bilayers). Using biological inspiration and tools of chemistry, physics and engineering, we aim to explore new (macro)molecular units (peptides and sugar polymers) mimicking the composition and structure of carbohydrates and proteins (vital constituents of all organisms) to develop materials by self-assembly with particular properties and function for bioengineering applications. We expect that combinations of these building blocks and their controlled self-assembly can generate the discovery of innovative biomaterials with unprecedented properties that can revolutionize tissue engineering and other forms of regenerative medicine.

Prof Knight

Prof Martin Knight
BEng, MSc, PhD, FHEA

Professor of Mechanobiology
My research is focussed on 'mechanobiology' or how living cells and tissues respond to physical forces. In particular I am interested in the mechanical properties of living cells and tissues and the role of the fascinating cellular structure known as the primary cilium (cilia in plural). My work explores the development of organ-on-a-chip in vitro models incorporating biomechanical stimuli. I work with a variety of different cell types including cartilage cells, tendon cells, cancer cells and stem cells helping to understand major diseases such as osteoarthritis, tendonopathy and cancer and the development of novel therapeutics

Professor in Biomedical Engineering & Biomaterials
Our team strives to develop innovative technologies and high impact research (Science 2008, Nature Materials 2010, Nature Chemistry 2015) to generate creative technologies and solutions for a variety of bioengineering applications. We use highly interdisciplinary approaches that integrate engineering, materials science, chemistry, nanotechnology, biology, and medicine to develop materials and devices that are hierarchical, biomimetic, offer spatio-temporal control, adaptability, tuneability, self-healing, and functionality. Current research in our lab includes the development of in vitro biomimetic environments, dynamic and directed self-assembling systems, molecular printing within 3D environments, and molecularly-designed bioactive implants for applications such as tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug screening.

Prof Screen

Prof Hazel Screen
BEng MRes PhD(Lond) CEng

Director of Division of Bioengineering /
Professor of Biomedical Engineering
My research aims to understand how some of the different tissues in our bodies, (particularly tendons and heart valves) are built to be able to withstand the loads they experience in the body. I am particularly interested in understanding how and why they get injured, and looking at ways to prevent this happening. By looking at the ways a tissue is supposed to work when it is healthy, we can identify how small changes in the structure, such as those which occur with age, can make injury more likely and look to prevent or treat these specifically.

Dr Birn-Jeffery

Dr Aleksandra Birn-Jeffery
MSci, PhD

Lecturer in Bioengineering
My research aims to understand how different movements are achieved across a variety of steady and non-steady tasks; in particular, how the mechanics and muscles are used to control movement. I apply this knowledge to differentiate healthy gait from injury and disease, by identifying these fundamental control priorities. Identification of these control priorities, and using these to discover markers for disease severity will help assess the effectiveness of different treatment interventions for gait deficits. Non-steady tasks, such as walking over obstacles are key to identifying these underlying control parameters.

Dr Botto

Dr Lorenzo Botto
PhD

Senior Lecturer (equiv. Associate Professor) in Fluid Mechanics
I am the leader of the Fluids, Particles and Interfaces Group (https://bottogroup.wordpress.com/). I am interested in fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, with particular focus on topics at the interface between classical fluid dynamics and materials science. My group uses simulations and theory, often corroborated by experimental results, to uncover fundamental engineering principles that can be applied to practical problems, in areas such as advanced materials, bioengineering, and energy engineering. Recurring topics of research in the group are the dynamics of particulate materials (suspensions, emulsions, powders, etc.) and the mechanics of soft interfaces. I lead the "Fluid Mechanics of Nanostructured Materials" Special Interest Group of the EPSRC-funded UK Fluids Network.

CEng, PhD, BSc, MIMMM, FRMS, FWES

Reader in Biomedical Materials
My research is focused around the development of pioneering biomaterials and healthcare therapies through development of novel materials and processing technologies and investigation of the phenomena behind biocompatibility, and the stimulation of tissue regeneration. I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms behind enhanced bone healing or regeneration in the presence of porous synthetic scaffolds, known as synthetic bone graft substitutes, via manipulation of both synthetic graft chemistry and hierarchical pore structure. I also have extensive experience in translating research from the bench to the bed side through my involvement in the successful development and commercialisation of a progressive series of synthetic bone graft substitute materials with tuneable hierarchical structures to support rapid, reliable bone regeneration, which are now in global clinical use in a range of applications including trauma, joint revision and spine surgery.
