Overview

Depending on your background, we will develop a specific project aim that relates to components of this larger project. Your research activities could involve one or more of the following:

  • 3D modelling of scaffolds using participant scans
  • 3D printing scaffolds using our in-house 3D printers
  • Mechanical testing of scaffolds
  • In-vitro cell culture work

Outcomes

The overall aim of this project is to create customised scaffolds using real participants' 3D scan data and examine biological functions of these scaffolds via cell culture.
