Dr. Michael Crichton

Michael’s research takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the development of novel biomedical devices centred around a strong understanding of soft-tissue biomechanics on the micron-scale.  Within this realm, his work is then focussed on the following areas:

  • Understanding the fundamental properties of tissue biomechanics and how they are perturbed;
  • Microfabrication of minimally-invasive sensing technologies for health and disease;
  • Biomimetic ways to interact with tissues and how this can be used to develop new materials etc.

The main goal of Michael’s research is to develop simple, effective technology for patient health using a materials-based, micron-scale approach.
