Understanding how mechanical factors interact with biological systems over time will enable us to better combat important diseases and injuries. We work with in silico and in vitro models of the human system of interest, and develop these models in parallel with development of direct measures of mechanobiology in patients.
Computational models can capture many varied aspects of the physiology of a problem, and allow us to estimate parameters that are not measurable in any other system.
Cell and tissue culture models enable us to investigate the basic science of response to mechanical stimuli and to analyse the mechanical environment of the cell in detail.
We are developing novel clinical imaging methods to enable quantitative measurements of mechanical function.
We are designing affordable prosthetics and other devices together with partners in India.
