Biomechanical Conditioning Enhanced Matrix Synthesis in Nucleus Pulposus Cells Cultured in Agarose Constructs with TGFβ.
Biomechanical signals play an important role in normal disc metabolism and pathology. For instance, nucleus pulposus (NP) cells will regulate metabolic activities and maintain a balance between the anabolic and catabolic ...

First results from high redshift quasar searches in VIKING
(Queen Mary University of London, 2012-06)
This thesis presents the discovery of the first luminous z & 6.5 quasars in the VISTA kilo-degree Infrared Galaxy Survey (VIKING). After some basic quality control, quasar selection is investigated via use of initial data ...
Total Synthesis of Nominal Lyngbouilloside Aglycon
European Society of Biomechanics S.M. Perren Award 2012: the external mechanical environment can override the influence of local substrate in determining stem cell fate.
The aim of this study was to explore how cell-matrix interactions and extrinsic mechanical signals interact to determine stem cell fate in response to transforming growth factor-β3 (TGF-β3). Bone marrow derived mesenchymal ...
