3.1.2.1. Josephine Allen, Ph.D.

3.1.2.1.1. The Allen Research group conducts research on biomaterials, cell-material interactions, and stem cell differentiation. The focus of our work is on developing strategies to control adult stem cell differentiation for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The goal is to better understand the multiple physiological signals and interactions that elicit molecular events governing stem cell differentiation. These molecular events, include substrate properties, mechanical cues, soluble factors, and cell-cell communication ultimately control stem cell fate and are the target areas of our research.

3.1.2.2. JON P. DOBSON, PH.D.

3.1.2.2.1. The main focus of Professor Dobson's research falls into four broad categories (i) nanomagnetic actuation for mechanical conditioning and control of cellular functions for regenerative medicine and stem cell research, (ii) enhanced in vitro and in vivo gene delivery and expression, (iii) magnetic nanoparticle-loaded cellular carriers for tumor targeting and tissue repair and (iv) magnetic nanoparticle synthesis and characterization. The underlying theme of all this work is the novel use of magnetic nanoparticles to develop technologies for bionanotechnology and nanomedicine applications in fields as diverse as gene therapy, stem cell therapy, tumour targeting and regenerative medicine. In addition, Professor Dobson also co-ordinates a large, multi-national research programme developing imaging and characterization techniques for iron compounds in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, to inform the development of MRI-based early diagnostic techniques and to guide the development of new therapies.
