Our Biomechanics group's research is focused on understanding the link between mechanics and biology in the musculoskeletal system. More specifically, our research involves biomechanics, pathologies and repair of skeletal tissues using tissue characterisation methods, imaging and computational simulation techniques. Our research has direct applications in orthopaedics, where clinicians are looking for improved methods or understanding of repair of skeletal tissues, e.g. bone, cartilage and tendons.

2018-October: Deepak Raina elegantly defended his PhD thesis titled: "Biomaterials as carriers for bone active molecules-An approach to create off-the-shelf bone substitutes". Opponent was Prof Fergal O Brien, Dublin, Ireland. Congratulations Dr. Raina!

2018-September: Isabella Silva Barreto presented her Master thesis titled "Nano-imaging of mineralization in developing long bones". Congratulations on a very well done project!

2018-May: Frida Bengtsson presented her Master thesis titled "Prediction of fracture propagation in human femur using the Finite Element Method". Congratulations on a very well done project!

2018-April: We welcome Catrin Rodenberg from the Technical University of Munich. She will be working on mechanically testing composites of CalciumSulphate/hydroxyapatite and bone as exchange student.
