Dr. Niamh Nowlan was appointed a lecturer in the Department of Bioengineering in 2011. Dr. Nowlan’s research is in the area of developmental mechanobiology, with particular focus on skeletogenesis; the study of how mechanical forces induced by prenatal movements affect bone and joint formation before birth.

Prior to joining Imperial College, Dr. Nowlan held two postdoctoral fellowships in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland and in the Centre for Genomic Research, Barcelona, Spain. In 2009, Dr. Nowlan travelled to the USA as a Fulbright scholar, and spent six months working in Boston University. Dr. Nowlan obtained a PhD in Bioengineering from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in 2003, and holds a degree in Computer Engineering.

Welcome to the Developmental Biomechanics Lab!

Why do babies kick? The Developmental Biomechanics Lab is exploring this question from the point of view of how movement in the womb affects formation and development of the bones and joints. Mechanical forces are important for normal function of adult bones and joints, and we are investigating if mechanical forces are also important for prenatal skeletal development. If you are interested in learning more, please check out our Research page and our Publications.

We are in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London. Our research is part of the Biomechanics theme.
