Mechanobiology and the Primary Cilium - new treatments for old diseases?

Professor Martin Knight's Inaugural Lecture will focus on how mechanobiology may lead to new treatments for diseases such as arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer.

Our health depends on the way the living cells and tissues in our bodies respond to mechanical forces. Understanding this topic, known as ‘mechanobiology’, may lead to new treatments for diseases such as arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer. This lecture will take you on a personal journey from engineering to biology. In particular, Professor Knight will describe his work on a hitherto ignored cellular structure, the primary cilium, and its role in mechanobiology and disease.

Professor Knight is a professor of mechanobiology in the Institute of Bioengineering and the School of Engineering and Materials Science where he is the Director of Research and actively involved in the Medical Engineering degree programme.
