Project Description

The UKRMP Smart Materials Hub aims to develop the next generation of bioactive scaffolds and biomatrices to treat the eye, the musculoskeletal system and the liver.
This project is comprised of three interdisciplinary and complementary research Hubs and is led by Imperial College London in collaboration with the Universities of Nottingham and Southampton. The team at Nottingham spans across the Faculties of Science and Engineering and will focus on biomaterials development for musculoskeletal applications (with a focus on bone) and for targeted delivery to the liver.

We are searching for a highly motivated PhD student to undertake a research project in the musculoskeletal theme with a focus on the development of 3D materials with hierarchical properties that can replicate the structural complexity of tissues found in the body over multiple length scales. The student will utilise additive biofabrication techniques, including additive manufacturing and microfluidics that allow the formation of highly porous polymer structures with defined architectures. Such materials will be assessed for biocompatibility and their ability to promote bone tissue growth and ingress in a controlled manner.

This will be an exciting and well-resourced project which aims to redefine biomaterials development for bone regenerative medicine applications by attracting the best researchers to this interdisciplinary and flexible programme of work. It is an excellent opportunity to undertake exciting postgraduate research at a leading University supported by excellent supervision. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a keen interest in innovative multidisciplinary research within the field of regenerative medicine.
