Research Project: Advanced imaging of bioactive glass ion uptake and distribution in healthy and diseased cells involved in bone regeneration
Gavin Jell (UCL) and Julian Jones (Imperial)

Joel graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc in Biomaterials science and Tissue engineering. He then went on to complete a MSc in Nanotechnology and Regenerative medicine at UCL, researching the roles of silicon in bone regeneration. Joel’s PhD project continues this work under the supervision of Gavin Jell at the Royal Free hospital, focusing on imagining bioactive glass ion uptake in healthy and diseased bone cells.
