Research in Biomedical Engineering spans from computational modelling applied to understand physical properties of biological cells to the development of electronic devices to tackle medical conditions. The research team has established unique research expertise in the field of Biomechanics, which is evidenced by publications in high impact factor journals and by EPSRC grants. The research into medical devices has allowed the establishment of links with clinicians and with companies working in medical applications.
