Personal profile

Meysam is a Part-time lecturer and researcher in the Faculty of Computing, Media, and Engineering (CEM), School of Engineering and Sustainable Development (ESD).

He awarded his BSc degree in the field of Mechanical Engineering (Manufacturing) from the University of Najafabad (IAUN) in Iran in 2008. He gained valuable experiences and knowledge in collaboration with a variety of companies. 

He moved to the UK and joined De Montfort University in 2017 to pursue his academic life and finally awarded an MSc degree with distinction level in 2018.

He awarded a PhD bursary from the University of De Montfort in 2020. The area of his research is to design and manufacturing of bone scaffold and this study inspires PhD research.  

He is also playing roles at DMU including Research Assistant (RA) and SLTC.

PhD project

Title

Novel design and fabrication of bone scaffold

Abstract

As for the acceleration of population ageing, paced-life speeding, and urban environment deteriorating, people suffer from bone defects caused by natural diseases, accidental injuries, and bone fracture amongst athletes resulting in bone defect treatment as a main clinical surgery. Artificial bone implants are greatly used to replace and fix injured or fractured bone, resulting in normal physiological functions. From the biological points of view, it should benefit from good biocompatibility, including blood compatibility and histocompatibility. In terms of mechanical properties, sufficient mechanical strength is a key parameter to ensure stable structural support in the body. Furthermore, bone implants should have an external contour that matches the defect’s anatomical structure as far as possible, avoiding excessive bone resection during implantation. A series of factors including mechanical properties, geometry, shape and size of porosity, etc play a pivotal role in this research area. This research intends to bridge up the gap between the current materials, design and manufacturing methods for biomedical implants.
