ERC Starting Grant for IBEC researcher

Biomechanics and mechanobiology group leader Damien Lacroix has been awarded a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant for his research on finite element simulations of mechanobiology in tissue engineering.

With the funding, which will be supplied for up to five years, Damien will attempt to reach new frontiers in mechanobiology with the development of a novel approach for the modelling of tissue engineering. By integrating the microscopic modelling of cells with the macroscopic modelling of scaffolds, this research will shed light on the influence of mechanical loading and stimuli on cell behaviour and the subsequent formation of tissues.
