Stephen Thorpe PhD
Researcher Co-Investigator, School of Engineering & Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London.
My research is focussed on understanding how specific cell-matrix interactions mediate the transfer of physical signals from tissue to cell, and how the cell turns these biophysical signals into a biological response. I implement a range of engineering and biological techniques to probe cellular processes in response to mechanical perturbation. In addition to enhancing our basic understanding of cell mechanobiology, my research looks to leverage this understanding to develop cartilage and bone tissue engineering and regenerative medicine strategies.
