Biography

Raveena graduated from Imperial College London in 2016 following an undergraduate degree in Biology with a year of Management (BSc Joint Honors). She then went on to complete an MSc in Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine at University College London. In 2017, she started a PhD in Tissue Engineering at King’s College London in the Centre of Clinical, Oral and Translational Science. Her research focuses on the effect of nanogeometric cues on Mesenchymal Stem Cell behaviour, specifically the highly conserved banding pattern (with a 67nm periodicity) present on all native collagen fibrils, termed D-banding. Research into this natural topography will be further used to understand the effect of hybrid nano- and micro-scale topographies in inducing osteogenic differentiation for use in bone tissue engineering. She has presented her research at the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB) and has won the ESB Racquel LeGeros Award (2019), which will allow her to spend three months in a European laboratory to pursue her research with an international academic group dedicated to biomaterials and regenerative medicine. Raveena will be based in Prof Pamela Habibović’s group at the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine, Maastricht University.
