Summary: In this lecture Professor Anthony Bull of Imperial College, London, will demonstrate how bio-engineering is now having a major impact in understanding, mitigating, and repairing musculoskeletal failures.

Bones and joints are fundamental to all human endeavours. Physical mobility relies on the capacity of our musculoskeletal system to balance the requirement to bear heavy loads with maintaining fine control of movement and small perturbations of this system can result in significant disability. In this lecture Anthony Bull, Professor of Musculoskeletal Mechanics, Imperial College, London, will demonstrate how bio-engineering is now having a major impact in understanding, mitigating, and repairing musculoskeletal failures ranging from sporting sprains to severe injuries from blast.

Andrew Little is an alumnus of the School of Engineering at Warwick, who has made a huge success out of pioneering the automated supply of books for mail order companies such as Amazon. He has kindly funded the School to establish a lecture series of general engineering interest.
