My Work

The focus of the Buckley lab is to develop novel biomaterial, biofabrication and cell based strategies to regenerate or repair damaged tissues and restore function using minimal invasive strategies.

Research areas include:
* Spine/Intervertebral Disc, Cartilage, Meniscus, Peripheral Nerve Tissue Regeneration
* Decellularised Tissues, Injectable Hydrogels and Porous Scaffolds
* Biofabrication, 3D Printing and Bioprinting
* Gene Activated Biomaterials
* Cellular Microencapsulation, and Tissue Spheroids for Regeneration
* Cell Priming, Cryopreservation & Transportation Strategies
* In Silico Modelling of Microenvironments for Personalised Medicine

Potential Projects

Some active research projects include:
* Functionalised Injectable Extracellular Matrix Hydrogels
* Preclinical and In Silico Models for Personalised Regeneration of the Intervertebral Disc
* Extracellular Matrix Biomaterials for Wound Healing
* 3D Printing of Fibrous Electroconductive Biomaterials with Controlled Architectures for Peripheral Nerve Repair
* Microenvironmental Profiling, Predictive Screening and In Silico Modelling for Personalised Regeneration of the Intervertebral Disc
* Injectable Gene Activated Biomaterials to Modulate Regeneration and Inflammation of the Intervertebral Disc
* The Oestrogen-Adipokine Axis and Its Influence on Vertebral Cartilaginous End-Plate Calcification and Porosity Formation in Pre-Menopausal Females
* Development of Bioinks and Biomaterials for Musculoskeletal Regeneration
