BIOADHESIVE-TISSUE INTERACTIONS

How do biomaterials interact with cells and tissues at a biological level? Can we leverage these interactions to cure disease or prevent aging? Join our group to learn more about these exciting projects!

NANOTECHNOLOGY FOR CANCER TREATMENT

We are developing cutting-edge nanotechnologies for the treatment of metastatic ovarian cancer, among other types of cancers. Want to tackle this problem?

SMART BIOMATERIALS FOR CARTILAGE REGENERATION

Osteoarthritis affects 1 in 3 adults over 45 years old in the UK, and costs the NHS over £10b every year. We are developing new, smart biomaterials to promote cartilage regeneration to treat osteoarthritis.
