St Catharine’s College hosted a second Cambridge University Engineering Department Bioengineering seminar on 10th March 2016. The event was attended by around 70 people, with a mix of engineers, clinical and biological scientists. The wide range of bioengineering activities being undertaken in the Engineering Department was highlighted, with topics ranging from improved image analysis of CT images containing artefacts due to metal implants (Dr Graham Treece) to a study of the structure and strength of trabecular bone (Prof Chris Burgoyne). The meeting concluded with a talk by Prof Sir Mark Welland on Engineering nanoparticles for therapeutics, appropriately as he prepares to take over being Master at St Catharine’s this October.
