Research Interests


Development of a Bioreactor System for Production of Clinically Relevant Volumes of Bone and Joint Tissue


Main Goals

  • To develop, evaluate and optimise a bioreactor system for the culture of stem cells on biomaterial scaffolds
  • The bioreactor will be used:
    • To investigate the suitability of human stem cells and induced pluripotent cells for tissue repair
    • To evaluate novel biomaterial scaffolds for bone and joint repair applications
    • To produce tissue constructs for tissue development, matrix structure and cell interactions studies
