George Burke is Lecturer in Cell Biology at the Nanotechnology and Integrated Bio-Engineering Centre at the University of Ulster. He graduated with a BSc, PhD and PGCHET from Queen’s University Belfast. He is currently a member of the Trauma and Rehabilitation Recognised Research Group, acts as Treasurer for the Northern Ireland Biomedical Engineering Society, is a Committee member for the Microscopical Society of Ireland and a member of the Tissue and Cell Engineering Society, UK. He has a number of published research papers in peer-reviewed journals and presented research findings at 40 national and international research conferences. He has two main areas or research; firstly, to investigate the complex bio-molecular interactions at the interface of cellular growth on biomaterial surfaces, and secondly, to examine how these molecular mechanisms may be altered by novel surface modification techniques. This work involves the analysis of the complex cellular response to manufactured biomaterials and medical polymers.
