About Brown Group
The Brown Group combines advanced experimental and computational techniques to provide new insights into the structure-function relationships in biomedical materials. While focusing on musculoskeletal tissues and related biomaterials, the group maintains an active interest in other high-performance biological materials including spider silk and ivory.
The Brown Group is also involved in a number of translational activities, including the development of new optics-based diagnostic devices, scalable nanostructured surfaces and 3D constructs for regenerative medicine, new devices and approaches for surgery, and automated analysis/interpretation techniques for medical imaging.
The Brown Group biomedical engineering and materials scholarships are for Doctoral (PhD) Programme.
