Advanced Materials in Medicine


Mechanobiology and Biomechanics Forum

The Mechanobiology and Biomechanics Forum is a cross-faculty platform that brings together researchers in the field of mechanobiology, bio(nanomechanics), biomaterials, bioengineering and tissue engineering. By harnessing the collective expertise from its multidisciplinary userbase, this forum aims to expedite research into technologies and methods to better understand the impact of biomechanics on biological systems. We aim to guide such research advancements through dedicated seminars and workshops across The University of Manchester (UoM).

We are integrated into Advanced Materials in Medicine, as part of the Christabel Pankhurst Institute, which hosts a vibrant community of leading researchers spread across its four major research themes i.e., Tissue Engineering, Bioelectronics, Nanomedicine and Biomaterials. This association will pave the way for better collaborations and adoption of new research strategies.

Our key objectives are to enhance:

  • Researcher visibility– through advertisement of researcher expertise and interests, improved communication on projects and identification of technological crossovers. We will promote collaborations both internally and external to UoM.
  • Researcher Experience – a platform to discuss researcher needs and challenges, whilst promoting access to cutting-edge research methodologies, best practices and therefore expediting research at UoM.
  • Accessibility to state-of-the-art research technologies – curate an accessible and up-to-date database that includes expertise, available instrumentations, and authorised personnel for training.
  • Communications – through monthly mailing lists, seminars, and workshops this forum will highlight novel technologies, improved research materials, and actively discuss key findings alongside transferable technologies/techniques across UoM. 


We ask all prospective users to provide a brief description of their research projects/expertise and contacts for relevant lab members.
