The tendon research group at Queen Mary University of London is interested in characterising tendon mechanobiology in health and disease throughout life.
Taking a hierarchical approach, we investigate tendon behaviour from a whole body level (in vivo) right down to sub-cellular mechanics.
By understanding structure, function and mechanics in healthy tissue first, we are building a picture of the changes which occur in injury and disease and why they occur, so we can begin finding treatments to prevent or cure these. Further, we actively research methods of disseminating good practice, and the effectiveness of such methods.
You will find details of our active projects here, and our research outputs over the last few years.
