The Engineers

Daniel Morse | PhD Student, Cardiff University

I look at how fungi and bacteria from the mouth interact and cause infections, how the cells in the mouth respond, and infect my own home-grown living 3D model of the roof of the mouth (which looks pretty cool under the microscope!).

Ana Gallego | Materials Engineer, Blatchford

I make artificial legs for amputees.

Zach Welshman | PhD Student, University of Leeds

I use a big expensive computer to see how the tiny bones and muscles in the foot move when you run around.

Sophie Cox | Lecturer, University of Birmingham

I use new materials and methods to make bone implants.

Todd Burton | PhD Student, University of Edinburgh

I am trying to find the best environment to grown a kidney in.

Alejandra Aranceta | Research Associate, University of Strathclyde

I work developing robotic arms for people that have lost their hand.
