Prof Wen Wang
My work encompasses biofluid mechanics, microcirculation, tissue deformation, gas exchange and osmoregulation.

Prof Joan Morris
My work with Professor Sir Nicholas Wald is in evaluating the effectiveness of screening strategies for many different disorders, for example heart disease (including the meta-analytic work on the "polypill"?), familial hypercholesterolaemia, cystic fibrosis, fragile X syndrome, neural tube defects and Down syndrome. Recent work includes mathematically modeling the population effect of cascade testing for a range of disorders, as well as developing statistical methods in epidemiology.

Prof Muhammad Yaqoob
All aspects of renal and transplant medicine.

Prof Timothy Warner
My expertise lies in the field of Vascular biology. Specific areas of interest include inflammation and non-steroidal drugs.

Prof Martin Knight
My research is focussed on 'mechanobiology' or how living cells and tissues respond to physical forces. This includes the mechanical properties of living cells and tissues and the biological response. In particular I am interested in the role of the fascinating cellular structure known as the primary cilium (cilia in plural) and how this structure is involved in health and disease. I work with a variety of different cell types including cartilage cells, tendon cells, neurons and stem cells helping to understand important diseases such as osteoarthritis, tendonopathy and ovarian cancer.

Prof Julia Shelton
My field of research covers biomechanics, in particular, the development of measurement systems applied to the body. Aspects of my research include the evaluation of tissue engineered structures and developing accelerated wear testing, in vitro, for the evaluation of total hip joint replacements.

Dr Dylan Morrissey
My main research interests are tendinopathy, evidence translation and the link between movement and pathology. Through my research, I aim to deliver step changes in the understanding and management of common musculoskeletal conditions. I am also passionate about paralympic sport, and was a headquarters physiotherapist for London 2012.

Prof Nicholas Wald
My research interests include epidemiology, public health, and screening (ante-natal, cancer, cardio-vascular). I am the innovator of the "Polypill", a new approach to the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, and with my son David have conducted a trial demonstrating the expected effect of a polypill. I have also worked on primary prevention of serious disorders such as neural tube defects and lung cancer. I have pioneered research on the benefits of Folic Acid during pregnancy, as well as the Barts Triple Test for early detection of Down's syndrome.

Dr Shah-Jalal Sarker
As a Lecturer in Biostatistics at the CECM, I lead the design and analysis of all cancer clinical trials and provide key input into all grant applications. I also work as a trial statistician for trials covering dose escalation, combination chemotherapy, immune therapy, imaging and quality of life. My collaborative research with other clinicians/ scientists also includes laboratory studies and epidemiological studies. I also provide Biostatistics consultancy services to all BCI staff and students. My specific research interests include the study of psychological effects of cancer on quality of life, Epidemiology and frailty models.

Prof Sandra Eldridge
Medical statistics particularly statistics in primary health care, cluster randomised trial design and complex interventions.

Dr Sarah Hull
East London General Practice Database Project; interface between accident and emergency departments and general practice; mental health services in primary care.
