    • Engineering a Corneal Stromal Equivalent Using a Novel Multilayered Fabrication Assembly Technique. 

      Ahearne, Mark (2020)
      To overcome the serious shortage of donor corneas for transplantation, alternatives based on tissue engineering need to be developed. Decellularized corneas are one potential alternative, but their densely packed collagen ...
    • Designing Scaffolds for Corneal Regeneration 

      Ahearne, Mark (Wiley, 2020)
      Corneal blindness is one of the most common causes of vision loss worldwide, affecting millions of people. To treat these patients, researchers have been examining different approaches to engineer corneal scaffolds suitable ...
    • Effect of substrate topography on the regulation of human corneal stromal cells. 

      Ahearne, Mark (Elsevier, 2020)
      Optimal functionality of native corneal stroma depends on a well-ordered arrangement of extracellular matrix (ECM). To develop an in vitro corneal model, replication of the corneal in vivo microenvironment is needed. In ...
    • Influence of micropatterned substrates on keratocyte phenotype 

      Ahearne, Mark (2020)
      Substrate topographic patterning is a powerful tool that can be used to manipulate cell shape and orientation. To gain a better understanding of the relationship between surface topography and keratocyte behavior, surface ...
    • Design of a Kelvin cell acoustic metamaterial 

      Kennedy, John; Rice, Henry; Trimble, Daniel; Göransson, Peter; Dowling, Luke (2020)
      Advancements in 3D print technology now allow the printing of structured acoustic absorptive materials at appropriate microscopic scales and sample sizes. Optimisation of parameter sets associated with a Kelvin Cell structure ...
