Biomechanical Engineering Group
The Biomechanical Group specialises in applying
the principles of mechanical engineering and materials science to the study of
biomedical systems. It has an international reputation for its research and
post-graduate training programmes. The group runs an MSc Programme in
Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, a doctoral training programme in Healthcare Engineering for an
Aging Population (HEAP), and a large number of
individual PhD projects.
The research of the group falls into four major research programmes, as follows:
- biomaterials & therapeutics
- medical devices
- cardiovascular engineering
The group benefits from high quality dedicated research
laboratories and computational biomechanical analysis tools, which are used to
study the form and function of a diverse range of biomechanical mechanisms. The
group has strong and direct engagement with medical clinicians and the
biomedical industry ensuring that the translational impact of the work is significant.
The group has strong and reciprocal links with the UCL Institute of Healthcare
Engineering, and UCL Institute of Making.
We are always looking for talented PhD students, and frequently have PhD scholarships available, please contact the individual academic staff below to enquire about these opportunities.
