Tim moved back to Cambridge in August 2015 to commence his PhD. His project represents a collaboration between the Animal Health Trust and the Division of Trauma and Orthopaedics at the University of Cambridge. Tim’s PhD is supported by a Cambridge Trust Scholarship.
Tim’s PhD research project centres on the development of a novel, stem cell based approach to study the genetic risk of fracture in Thoroughbred racehorses. The main focus of his research to date has been the development of an in vitro model to study fracture in the Thoroughbred. Such models will aid the future development of drugs and augmentation of surgical techniques.
