Insigneo in partnership with three leading Scottish universities : SofTMech, a centre for multiscale soft tissue mechanics

SofTMech is a Centre for multiscale soft tissue mechanics funded by EPSRC under its Mathematical Sciences in healthcare programme. The centre is led by the University of Glasgow in partnership with University of St Andrews, Heriot Watt University and The University of Sheffield. SoftMech will accelerate the development of multiscale soft-tissue modelling by constructing a ge...

An overview of our research in biomechanics and mechanobiology by MultiSim’s Director Professor Lacroix

Professor Damien Lacroix, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the MultiSim project, talks about his research into biomechanics and mechanobiology. His research through the MultiSim project, focuses on understanding the effects of mechanical stimuli on cells and tissues within the body. The vision of this project is to develop and research a modelling framewo...

Focus of our Research

The two central ideas that the Frontier Engineering multi-scale project focus on are: a)      The development of a novel multi-scale model of the musculoskeletal system that describes the mechanobiological processes from the whole body (neuromuscular control and body dynamics) down to the cellular level (bone remodelling and mechanosensing); b)      The creation of a mult...
