Dharmesh Patel



Dharmesh Patel is an early career researcher with a particular interest in tissue mechanics and mechanotransduction mechanisms. He has an IMechE accredited MEng degree in Medical Engineering from Queen Mary University of London, and completed a PhD under the supervision of Professor Hazel Screen where he investigated the effects of shear-tension ratios on Human Tenocyte metabolism using a novel fibre composite system. Dharmesh is currently working as a post-doctoral research assistant investigating the differences in structure and mechanics between energy storing and positional tendons, focusing on the interfascicular matrix, and how these properties change with age.
