Multiscale modeling of experimental setups in skeletal regeneration

  • Finite element analysis
  • Multi-scale modelling
  • Tissue engineering
  • Computational biomechanics

The aim of my research is to develop multi-scale computational models of the knee joint and other bioreactor setups typically used in skeletal tissue engineering to investigate the role of mechanical signals in chondrogenic differentiation. These multi-scale models would help in identifying mechanical stimulus which will aid tissue engineers in generating bone or cartilage as well as to devise physio-therapeutic strategies to arrest Osteoarthritis.
