Webinar: 3D Hydrogel Systems for Biomedical Applications – Presented by: Professor Matthew Dalby


Free Webinar: Modelling In Vivo Conditions In Vitro: 3D Hydrogel Systems For Biomedical Applications

Presented by: Professor Matthew Dalby | Professor of Cell Engineering (Institute of Molecular Cell and Systems Biology) at the University of Glasgow

Professor Matthew Dalby is a biologist interested in the way that mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow interact with materials. He gained his PhD in Biomedical Materials in 2001 from Queen Mary University of London and joined the University of Glasgow in 2000 as a PDRA.  

In 2003 he gained a BBSRC David Phillips Fellowship and focussed on how mesenchymal stem cells were directed to differentiate and to self-renew by nanotopography. He became Professor of Cell Engineering in 2014. In 2009 Matthew founded the Glasgow Orthopaedic Initiative with Dominic Meek to help improve academic training for trainee surgeons in the West of Scotland and in 2016 he was elected as a fellow to the Royal Society of Edinburgh. 

His research interest includes adult stem cell interactions with nanotopography, dynamic (cell responsive) surfaces, 3D hydrogels and growth factors organising interfaces; metabolomics for stem cells; and stem cell mechanotransduction. To pursue these interests, he holds grants form EPSRC (including a programme grant), BBSRC and Find a Better Way.
