Research summary

I am Director of the Centre for Precision Healthcare and lead the UCL Applied Biomedical Engineering Group, both based in the UCL Division of Medicine. The group is affiliated to the Research Department of Experimental and Translational Medicine.

My research interests are centred on the application of biomedical engineering, primarily through tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, to provide healthcare solutions for debilitating conditions, which contribute to the UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing. To enable this, we have inter-disciplinary research collaborations with other UCL groups in the Faculties of Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematical & Physical Sciences, and Medical Sciences, as well as clinical and surgical collaborations at the affiliated University College London Hospital. The group works closely with the UCL Translational Research Office and UCL Business to facilitate clinical translation and commercialisation of our exciting and innovative technology.
