Dr Barbieri

Dr Ettore Barbieri
Dott. Ing. , PhD, FHEA

Honorary Senior Lecturer in Modelling and Simulation of Engineering Systems
We are interested in mechanics of materials, how they deform under loading, and ultimately, how they break. We use computer simulations to predict when this happens. We use commercial software when we can, but often we have to write our software. We have experience in a wide range of materials, from engineering (metals, rubber, ceramics and composites) to biological (bones). Sometimes we take inspiration from nature and the arts to invent new structures.

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.

My research aims to understand how our tissues are built to be able to withstand the loads they experience in the body. I am particularly interested in understanding tendon and heart valve; how and why they get injured, and 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 Szilágyi

Dr Petra Ágota Szilágyi
PhD, MRSC, FHEA, MSc, MA

Lecturer in Functional Materials
I am interested in developing materials for energy applications, in particular for fuel synthesis. When solid materials are of very small particles their properties (such as colour, electric conductivity. etc.) starts to depend on the particle size. My main goal is to achieve control of the properties of materials by controlling their particle size and shape. There are various ways to control particle size, and in my approach templates of well-defined size and shape are used. The above templates are pores of a kind of material called metal-organic frameworks. This is a relatively new kind of materials and they can enter very diverse interactions with guest materials, which I aim to explore to further tailor the latter's properties.

My research interests are in the development, testing and use of biomaterials for bone and joint replacement. In particular composites of bioactive ceramics and polymers which can encourage bone ongrowth yet have sufficient mechanical properties to be used for load bearing applications. These are based on either non-degradable or degradable artificial or natural polymers depending on application. In parallel I have interests in the mechanical properties of bone and the effects of pathology on these properties.
