Develop single-cell biomechanical nanotools for novel cardiovascular mechanobiology and cancer immunotherapy

In view of the high complexity and dynamics of protein complexes that perform important physiological functions, it is difficult to visualise and characterise their kinetic and signaling processes on single living cells using traditional biochemical and biophysical techniques. Read more

Low back pain (LBP) during pregnancy: an exploration of biomechanical precipitating factors using non-invasive telemetric sensing of gait and everyday physical activities

  Research Group: Nursing and Health
Over two-thirds of women experience LBP during pregnancy, with symptoms typically increasing as pregnancy advances1. Women often have a history of simple LBP, and continue to experience symptoms after birth2, which directly adds to the substantial cost associated with LBP in the general population3,4. Read more

Variability and biomechanical strategies in single and bi-manual hand movements

Self-funded Master's by Research opportunity. Osteoarthritis (OA) of the thumb carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ) is a common condition affecting 60-70% of people over 65, and tends to affect females more than males. Read more

Predicting musculoskeletal loading from video during rehabilitation

Project details. Background. Knowledge of tissue-specific loads on the muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments of the human musculoskeletal system has implications for the prescription and monitoring of exercises across clinical, sporting, and occupational rehabilitation. Read more

PhD in Mechanical Engineering: Understanding the impact of underwater cleaning on fouling control coatings

Overview. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is crucially important to meet globally agree climate/temperature targets. Maritime transport emits around 940 million tonnes of CO2 annually. Read more

A novel computational biomechanics framework to model vascular mechanopropagation and single cell mechanosensing

The mechanical stimuli generated by body exercise can be transmitted from cortical bone into the deep bone marrow. A mechanosensitive perivascular stem cell niche is recently identified within the bone marrow for osteogenesis and lymphopoiesis. Read more

Musculoskeletal loading from a minimal wearable sensor system during rehabilitation

Project details. “In the future… training and rehabilitation programmes will use wearable and simple imaging technologies to estimate tissue level biomechanics derived from personalised neuromusculoskeletal modelling in real-time in the real-world. Read more

How does knee joint and meniscal tissue shape affect joint biomechanics and treatment choice?

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
This PhD offers training in multiple biomechanical research techniques, for an important musculoskeletal challenge. Over 4.5 million people in the UK have knee arthritis. Read more

Beating mesenchymal stem cell senescence with materials that organise growth factors.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from the adult bone marrow can differentiate into cells that support the regeneration of tissues such as bone cartilage, ligament and tendon. Read more

Computer Vision and Deep Learning during Sport Collisions

Injuries are a major problem in sport. We aim to understand the forces applied to the human body during injury events in sport, and how this canbe prevented based on biomechanical factors such as speed, player orientation and technique. Read more
