94% of the research conducted at Loughborough University is rated as world-leading or internationally excellent (REF2021). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career.

The Mechanics of Advanced Materials research group is focused on understanding the link between mechanics and biology on the nanoscale. Cells are an integral part of most tissues, differentiating and migrating, to mediate the health of the tissue. Understanding the molecular mechanism such as adhesive, mechanical and motile changes of these cells hamper the growth. On the other hand, Cancer cells are known to have excessive growth and proliferation in a similar environment. The difference in the behaviour of both the healthy and cancer cells will be essential in understanding the human body's cellular/ nano/ molecular system, aiding cancer research and reducing recovery time in a hospital.

The project goal is to develop a ground-breaking mechanobiological fluid-solid model of healthy and cancer cells investigating the mechanisms involved in the development and progression of cancer to facilitate the translation of basic science discoveries resulting in improvements in cancer outcomes. The project consists of cutting-edge experimental studies involving novel edge instrumentation, imaging techniques and numerical modelling computationally efficient and accurate which can then be used to cure the disease from progressing necessary for tissue recovery.
