Dr Judith Curran
I am a Lecturer in the Centre for Materials and Structures in the School of Engineering and I am also a researcher for Clinical Engineering. I previously worked in the department of Musculoskeletal Bioolgy II in the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease at the University.
My area of expertise is in Cell-Material Interactions; Developing nano-arrays of material variables to effectively control biological response and identifying areas for cost effective translation for commercial and clinical applications. I am now working with a group of researchers based in engineering to develop Bioengineering research themes.
I wanted to work in the School of Engineering because not only does the school have an excellent reputation for facilities and equipment, and a high profile in terms of centre development and staff, I really wanted to work in, and contribute to, the dynamic and forward thinking environment that I feel is active in the School. Everyone I have met, from a wide variety of disciplines has a natural passion for what they do and are keen to push the boundaries, something that is essential if the promise of tissue engineering and biomaterials is ever to be realised. On both a personal and research level I feel I can learn a lot from the high quality of people that I have met and I look forward to what can be achieved!
