Halfway Point and things are going well In general, I have loved doing a PhD so far. I’m approaching the halfway point and things are going fairly well. By the end I hope to have produced a workflow that others can use to repeat my analysis in clinical practice. I recently got a rough first version to work so that was a highlight...

BJR-BORS International Travelling Fellowship The BJR-BORS International Travelling Fellowship is designed to promote education and increase research opportunities for early career researchers. I was fortunate enough to have been selected as one of six travelling fellows, comprising two senior clinical Residents and four Engineers. Together we travelled across the US...

What research project you selected and its impact? I chose my research project primarily because I was interested in using my interdisciplinary scientific background to work towards a ‘real world’ problem. My project was sponsored by industry, so the project aim was to perform a proof of feasibility study on...

The Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (YES) is a global competition which encourages researchers to combine translatable scientific research with entrepreneurial knowledge in order to develop a business plan and commercialise a scientific-based product. This year, five students from CDT TERM-iMBE took part in the YES19 Biotechnology competition. The team developed a...

My project My PhD project involves developing enhanced simulation methods for the in vitro assessment of early stage knee interventions. The aim is to recreate the physiological environment these interventions will experience when implanted into a living person. The initial focus of my research has been to develop simulations which...

As I come to the end of my first year on the CDT, I’m finding myself overwhelmed with a whirlwind of emotions. I’m eager to begin my research yet equally apprehensive about (what feels like) an insurmountable amount of information I have to somehow absorb (and generate!) in the coming...
