BIOGRAPHY

On completion of a PhD degree in 2007 in the area of scaffolds and bone tissue engineering, Prof. Buckley worked as a senior postdoctoral fellow in the fields of cartilage regenerative medicine and mechanobiology- developing new strategies, medical devices and techniques for stem cell based repair. In 2009, Prof. Buckley was awarded an SFI fellowship to work in the mesenchymal stem cell group at the Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine, UK focusing on isolation, enrichment and characterisation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from different tissue sources for regenerative medicine purposes. His current main research area focuses on the development of strategies to regenerate the intervertebral disc (IVD) and articular cartilage. Other research areas include design and development of bioreactor based systems, tissue engineering, nutrient micro-environments, biomaterial interactions and 3D scaffold construct technology.
