Luke Madden

Trinity College Dublin


Research Project: Advanced characterisation of materials based musculoskeletal tissue regeneration

Supervisors: David Hoey (TCD), Daniel Kelly (TCD), Alexandra Porter (ICL)

Luke graduated from University College Dublin with a BSc in Chemistry with Biophysical Chemistry in 2022. His final year project involved the creation of a novel biomaterial with potential use as a tissue engineering scaffold. His research interests are in biochemistry, biomaterials, tissue engineering, and organ-on-chip technologies. Luke’s PhD project involves the use of advanced characterisation techniques for the creation of viable organ-on-chip models of healthy and diseased human musculoskeletal tissues for animal-free testing of therapeutics.
