Director of Research
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 role of the fascinating cellular structure known as the primary cilium (cilia in plural).
My work also explores the development of organ-on-a-chip models incorporating biomechanical stimulation for predicting the performance of pharmaceuticals.
I work on a variety of different diseases including osteoarthritis, cancer, atherosclerosis and the development of novel therapeutics.+44 (0)20 7882 email@example.com
