Research units

Our research units include the Scottish Mechanotransduction Consortium (SMTC), the Edinburgh Orthopaedic Engineering Collaboration (EOEC), and the Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering Collaboration (MTEC), a world leader in translational stem cell research.



Edinburgh Orthopaedic Engineering

Working at the boundaries of the disciplines of engineering and medicine, the Centre offers undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to develop technology with practical applications for clinical settings.

Scottish Mechanotransduction Consortium

The Scottish Mechanotransduction Consortium (SMTC) aims to increase understanding of mechanically responsive cells. We have wide range of facilities available for use by external parties.

Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering Collaboration (MTEC)
