Profile

I am currently employed as a Research Fellow in Regenerative Musculoskeletal Tissue Scaffolds on the EPSRC programme grant, Optimising Knee Therapies.  I carry out cross-disciplinary research within the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE), working within the School of Biomedical Engineering (Faculty of Biological Sciences) and the School of Mechanical Engineering (Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences).  Previously I worked as a post-doctoral research assistant in iMBE, where I also completed my PhD in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.  The title of my PhD is “Decellularisation processes for the intervertebral disc”.  I gained my BSc in Biology from the University to Manchester.

Research interests

My current research focuses on the development of decellularised osteochondral scaffolds as a regenerative therapy for cartilage repair.  I have previously carried out similar work on decellularised bone and intervertebral disc scaffolds.  These scaffolds are biologically and biomechanically evaluated for their suitability as musculoskeletal repair materials.
