My name is Ben Golland and I’m a second-year PhD student at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine, University of Leeds. I decided to undertake a secondment at Medipex, a centre designed to help NHS staff and departments in the Yorkshire & Humber and East Midlands regions maximise the reach of any healthcare innovations.
My name is Dr. Andrew Aldridge and I am a Post-Doctoral Researcher working in the field of Regenerative Medicine, specifically the use of adult stem cells in combination with tissue scaffolds.
My name is Fiona Walker and as a senior research technician at the University of Leeds, I support the research and development of novel biological scaffolds. These scaffolds, produced from animal and human tissues, offer a non-immunogenic and cell-free scaffold to aid in the repair of diseased or damaged tissue for patients. They have the capacity to overcome the limitations associated traditional transplant grafts.
I am Tom Richards, a PhD student at the University of Leeds, just entering my final year. My interests lie in mapping neural pathways involved in movement in order to determine how muscles are interconnected.
