Materials for Medical Engineering
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Duncan Simpson.
Research at Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials concerns materials which will interact therapeutically with the body, having bioactive structures which encourage the tissue’s natural function, as well as providing tailored mechanical support, or releasing drugs at a controlled rate. Current research involves developing orthopaedic materials and scaffolds to replace bone, cartilage, ligament and spinal discs, together with materials for nerve regeneration, and artificial mammary gland structures. Further lines of research include the delivery of active agents to the body, both in combination with devices and as pharmaceutical delivery systems in their own right. This talk will focus on the range of scaffolds under study, and the diversity of medical applications for which they are being developed. Thoughts about future strategies and possible collaborative directions will be outlined
