Biography
Biography: 

Laurent Bozec completed his PhD in 2002 at Lancaster University (Physics) developing novel applications for scanning probe microscopy. During his thesis, he developed an infrared-based AFM technique, known as Photothermal Microspectroscopy (PTMS). He then joined the Bone and Mineral Centre in UCL Medicine and subsequently the London Centre for Nanotechnology, working in Prof. Horton's Group as a Senior Research Fellow. During this period, his main research focused on understanding the biophysics of collagen and proposed a new model for the collagen fibril.

He has recently been appointed as Lecturer in the department of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (Sept. 2007).
