Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Chancellors Fellow within the Department of Biomedical Engineering. My research interests include the control of cell function/fate through applied mechanical stimulation and development of materials for tissue regeneration (cellular and acellular). Since 2012 I have been involved with a multidisciplinary collaboration using nano amplitude vibration to stimulate stem cell osteogenesis ('nanokicking'). This technology is now being translated towards clinic as an osteogenic cell therapy for orthopaedic repair. I have also been involved in the translation of implantable bioactive polymers for growth factor delivery ('HealiOst'). Previously I was awarded a Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise Fellowship and have a keen interest in the clinical/commercial translation of cell engineering technologies.
