Welcome Luke.

We would like to welcome Luke Johnson to the SDC, who is a fourth year student at the Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge. Luke has been here before, on an Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme placement in the summer of 2016, and after specialising in Bioengineering in his third year he has returned to the Surgical Discovery Centre for his final year project, under the joint supervision of Professor Matthew Allen and Dr Michael Sutcliffe of the Engineering Department.

With a working title “Robotic Testing of Canine Knee Replacement" the project involves manipulation of cadaveric canine knees using our industrial 6-degree-of-freedom robot arm to investigate the effect of total knee replacement on the kinetics and kinematics of the knee.
