Tissue Engineering focused on the development of improved ligament replacements, prostheses and neoligaments and in the characterisation of tendons
The area of tissue engineering is a rapidly expanding field, important in many disciplines within medicine. However, critically the major advances will arise in the field when an improved understanding of cellular processes is understood. Current research work has been focused on the development of improved ligament replacements...
This research area focuses in the development of lifetime predictions for skeletal implants, to establish reliable long term clinical predictions from short term laboratory tests. Research to perform laboratory wear tests on hip replacements, with the ultimate aim to develop methodologies for predicting clinical wear in novel...
