Development of mechanically enhanced osteoinductive synthetic bone graft substitutes
Principal Investigator: Karin HING
Funding source: Apatech Ltd

The aim of this project is to develop and test a series of bone graft substitutes with novel pore structures using a perfusion based bioreactor system with flow to waste and closed loop capabilities, that is also able to subject real bone graft substitute granules to direct mechanical perturbation. This system has been validated using human mesenchymal stem cells seeded on BGS with varied strut porosity and will be further optimised to enable screening of new structures.

ZINCLAPS2
Principal Investigator: Steffi KRAUSE
Co-investigator(s): Anirban DAS
Funding source: Commission of the European Community

In this project, we propose to develop a novel LAPS setup with high spatiotemporal resolution combined with two-photon fluorescence microscopy that allows imaging of physiological processes with submicron resolution and in real time.

X-Ray microtomography of bone repair within bone graft substitutes
Principal Investigator: Karin HING
Co-investigator(s): Graham Davis
Funding source: Apatech Ltd

X-ray micro computed tomography (XMT) is a powerful tool for obtaining high resolution images of bone growing within synthetic bone graft substitute scaffolds with the aim of investigating and quantifying the effect the different grafts have on the bone that forms within the graft. However, before the bone structure and volume can be quantified, the images produced need to accurately segmented into their different regions. The aim of this project was to develop an automated operator independent method of segmenting XMT images to enable quantification of bone regeneration and graft remodelling in 3D.

DEFCOMDEFCOM
Principal Investigator: Mike REECE
Funding source: E.P.S.R.C.

Some of the most pressing global issues today are related to energy consumption, dissipation and waste. There is a great promise to address these issues by developing high-performance, cost-effective and eco-friendly materials for thermoelectric applications.

MASSIVEMASSIVE Materials
Principal Investigator: Mike REECE
Funding source: E.P.S.R.C.

The MASSIVE project will develop scale-up manufacturing capability and know-how for the synthesis, processing and manufacture of un-commercialised thermoelectric, piezoelectric and related materials and devices, which contain volatile and air-sensitive elements and compounds, with engineered nano- and non-equilibrium phases and structures.

Investigation of chemotaxis in modulating smart behaviour in synthetic bone graft substitutes
Principal Investigator: Karin HING
Co-investigator(s): Simon Rawlinson
Funding source: Baxter Healthcare Corporation

Silicate substituted apatite bone grafts have an enhanced capacity to stimulate bone regeneration. Moreover, altering the level of strut porosity has the capacity to confer osteoinductive behaviour to these graft materials. The aim of this project is to investigate whether these phenomena are related to more efficient cell recruitment and tasking, through (i) exchange of Ca, PO4 and SiO4 ions, and/or (ii) optimal sequestering and enrichment of native signalling molecules.
