The Institution of Engineering & Technology provide an annual series of lectures. Please address any queries via www.theiet.org/solent (not the venue where we hire the function room).

Mechanosensitive Proteins, Methods of Analysis and Future Applications

Guy Butcher PhD student at Reading University

This presentation will cover ongoing research, as part of my PhD, into applying biomechanical theories to describe mechanosensing proteins in blood platelets. I shall discuss how specific structures within these proteins function as tension sensors and shock absorbers, and how we can then model them in mechanical simulations using the robotics principles of Kinematics and Statics..

(Our brief Annual Review will precede the presentation)
