Blast-induces damage of mature cochlea hair cells
Our goal is to understand what parts of the auditory system are affected by explosive blast injuries, how they are affected, and to develop diagnostic measures and therapeutic interventions to prevent the development of auditory disorders as well as to enable treatment.

Engineering self-healing composite materials with synthetic
Biological materials form the natural environment we see around us and are typically capable of self-assembly, self-healing and multifunctionality. This project is investigating living co-cultures of engineered cells which together ‘grow’ more sophisticated composite biomaterials than is achieved with a single cell type.

ArmeD SerVices TrAuma RehabilitatioN OutComE Study
The ADVANCE study has been set up to evaluate the clinical, biological and psychosocial outcomes of a cohort of 600 UK battlefield casualties. This 20-year cohort study will offer a uniquely comprehensive description of the long-term physical and psychosocial outcomes of blast and other battlefield trauma.
