About the Bio-Mechanical Group

The biomechanical workgroup is currently working on the physical responses of living cells and tissues based on both numerical and experimental validations. Physical forces are the most primary signals in the universe and can alter cellular and tissue behaviour in different ways. We are trying to uncover how force regulates the physiological behaviours of living cells and cartilage. In addition, we are also studying the responses of living cells to different biomaterials. Both nano-particle and nano-surface are studied from the viewpoint of modelling and experiments. These advanced inorganic materials are of great potential to be used in biomedical applications.
