Dr Ben Almquist is a Senior Lecturer (US equivalent: Associate Professor) in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial. His research combines aspect of materials science, nanotechnology, and biology to develop methods for dynamically manipulating the behaviour of cells and tissues. A major focus of this research is to understand how to direct the process of tissue repair by manipulating signalling networks. These insights are then used to develop methods for healing diabetic foot ulcers, preventing hypertrophic scarring, and modulating other wound healing disorders.
