Prof Busfield

Prof James Busfield
MA, PhD, FHEA, FIMMM, CEng

Director of Industrial Engagement
Professor of Materials
Examining the physical behaviour by experiment and modelling techniques of soft matter such as elastomers and rubber materials. Properties of interest include abrasion, friction, fracture, creep, fatigue, viscoelastic behaviour, modulus enhancement and composite filler reinforcement. Developing smart soft materials that can sense their environment and soft actuating materials that can change shape in response to a physical stimulus.

Prof Knight

Prof Martin Knight
BEng, MSc, PhD, FHEA

Director of Research, Senior Management Team
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, tendonopathy and cancer and the development of novel therapeutics.
