Sounding Out Biomedical Research - The Making of Dr James Armstrong Making A Scientist

    • Science

We have all felt the bass pulsing through us in a nightclub, but how can sound be leveraged as a biological research tool?

This week, my guest is Dr James Armstrong, who is a Research Fellow in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London.

James is an outstanding early career academic and has published research papers in fields such as ultrasound manipulation, tissue engineering and 3D bioprinting. During the pandemic, James also organised the highly successful virtual seminars in biomedical science - bringing together researchers in the biomedical community from the across the world. He is also an incredible mentor, and has been awarded the Imperial College President’s medal for Outstanding Assistant Supervisor.

In this episode, we discuss how James is currently using ultrasound as a biological research tool and the potential future applications this can have! We also discuss James’ career path and all of the brilliant advice that he was either given or wishes he would have heard much sooner in his career.

Since recording this podcast, James has accepted a position at the University of Bristol to set up his own independent research group focused on engineering complex living systems and he is looking for PhD students and postdocs to join him - if you are interested you can find out more by visiting www.TheArmstrongGroup.co.uk
