Professor Lynne Bilston bridges the gap between biomechanical engineering and medicine, undertaking fundamental research in how soft tissues respond to mechanical loading and applying this across public health and clinical medicine. She has made fundamental advances in soft tissue biomechanics, developing novel imaging and rheological techniques. She has applied this expertise to (i) understanding biomechanics of paediatric injury (mechanisms and prevention), culminating in major changes to child restraint standards and legislation, (ii) developing new theories of pathogenesis for hydrocephalus and syringomyelia and methods to study them; and (iii) developing novel imaging methods for basic science and clinical studies of sleep apnoea.
