Developing a humanoid bioreactor as a screening device for tendon biomaterials

My name is Muhammad Hanif Nadhif (Hanif). I am a DPhil student in Musculoskeletal Sciences program, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology, and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS), University of Oxford. I was trained as a mechanical engineer at the Universitas Indonesia for my bachelor’s degree (graduated in August 2015). Meanwhile, my biomedical engineering master’s degree was earned from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands (graduated in July 2018).

Prior to the DPhil study, I worked as a junior lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia (UI), and a researcher at the Medical Technology Cluster, Indonesian Medical Education and Research Institute (IMERI), Universitas Indonesia. My research focuses at that time included biomaterials, biomechanics, tissue engineering, and medical devices. I also gained research experiences when working as a research assistant at the Microfabrication Group at the UI led by A/Prof. Yudan Whulanza and as a graduate intern at the Philips Research Europe, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Apart from research, I also learned about manufacturing system when working as an intern at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia.

One of my research works at the IMERI was developing a tissue engineering bioreactor. That is also the main reason why I applied for a DPhil position with a focus on developing a humanoid bioreactor as a screening device for tendon biomaterials at the Mouthuy Group. Working with this topic means that I need to determine the robustness of the bioreactor when mechanically stimulating biomaterials based on the consistency of the biomechanical and biological outcomes. In the DPhil study, I am supervised by A/Prof. Pierre-Alexis Mouthuy and co-supervised by A/Prof. Sarah Snelling.
