Image: IBP Network Webinar: Dr Kathryn Stok - MicroCT imaging techniques and mechanobiology of cartilage and joint
Abstract: Measurement of mechanobiological control directly affects our capacity to innovate functional solutions in biomedical engineering and the biosciences. Musculoskeletal joints are constantly re-modelling under day-to-day loads, and suffer from natural ageing and degeneration, injury, or breakdown, therefore an approach for elucidating global responses to specific stimulation is warranted. In this work, Dr Kathryn Stok will present new multiscale approaches for exploring cartilage and...

Abstract: Imaging technology for the biosciences has taken huge leaps forward in recent times. Nobel prizes have been awarded for breaking the resolution barrier in light microscopy and cryo electron microscopy, revealing the cellular dynamics and atomic structure of molecules. In parallel, X-ray and chemical imaging are migrating from the physical to the life sciences, revealing the internal structure of tissues and metabolic pathways in exquisite detail. And in volume electron microscopy, a...

This event has been postponed to 15:00-16:00 on 4th August 2021 (BST). Abstract: Over the past 10 years, humans have built and opened five X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) facilities; one each in the USA, Japan, Germany, South Korea, and Switzerland. These linear electron accelerators generate X-rays in such intense and short bursts that they are a new, paradigm-shifting tool impacting nearly all scientific disciplines. My group and collaborators design novel strategies that link together...

Image: IBP Network Webinar: Dr Gianluca Tozzi - Digital volume correlation (DVC) in musculoskeletal research: state of the art and challenges
Abstract: Digital volume correlation (DVC) has the unique ability to provide experimental full-field measurement within materials undergoing motion or deformation. In recent years, the technique has been increasingly employed in biomechanics for the evaluation of both hard and soft tissues, biomaterials and tissue-biomaterial systems. This webinar is intended to present the latest advancements in the use of DVC for musculoskeletal research and its potential for improved experimental tissue...

Abstract: Finite Element (FE) models are powerful tools to predict the bone properties of different biological tissues. In the past decades they have been used to evaluate the effect of musculoskeletal diseases and related interventions on the structural mechanical properties of different bones. Nevertheless, before their clinical application, we have to provide the adequate credibility to the models through a meticulous process of verification, validation and uncertainties quantification. The...

Image: Inaugural IBP Network Webinar Series: Musculoskeletal tissue nanomechanics using in situ SAXS/WAXD
Abstract: Musculoskeletal organs undergo a hierarchy of deformation processes during physiological and injurious loading (from molecular to macroscale). This webinar will describe, using examples from bone and cartilage in health and disease, how to use high brilliance microfocus synchrotron X-ray scattering to measure the nanometre-scale mechanisms in these tissues dynamically and in situ. About the speaker: Dr. Himadri S. Gupta is Reader in Bioengineering and Biophysics in the Institute...
