Situated at the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London, we are an interdisciplinary team of researchers,  focused on the mechanobiology of cardiomyocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells.  
We use techniques to measure and apply pico-Newton forces (nanopillars, molecular tension sensors, AFM, nanoindentation, mechanical stimulators), micro- and nanopatterning, as well as super resolution microscopy to study the molecular processes that are regulating the development and maintenance of the heart and vasculature - or are the cause of cardiovascular disease.

Our work is funded amongst others through the British Heart Foundation, BBSRC, EPSRC

Industry Collaborations: 
We are also seeking to collaborate with Industry partners and have currently active projects with Unilever, Heidelberg Instruments Nano and Novo Nordisk
