Dr Ben Schon
Plant & Food Research
Postdoctoral Fellow, BSc(hons), PhD
Ben’s research is in the area of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine for orthopaedic applications, especially articular cartilage and bone.
He has previously focused on modular tissue assembly for engineering of articular cartilage, and has a range of expertise with in vitro primary and stem cell culture, 3D in vitro differentiation, tissue quality assessment, scaffold fabrication and 3D printing, hydrogel printing, development of composite constructs, and scaffold assessment.
Ben is also interested in imaging of cartilage and bone with spectral CT, looking at joint health as well as tissue regeneration.
