Professor, Bioengineering & Health Technologies Group, School of Clinical Dentistry
University of Sheffield, United Kingdom
Professor Hatton has research interests in biomaterials, medical devices and tissue engineering for clinical applications in human skeletal tissue repair and regeneration. The major themes for his research include the development of bioactive ceramics and glasses for mineralised tissue repair, glass-ionomer bone cements, the evaluation of biocompatibility, and scaffolds for musculoskeletal tissue engineering. He is also active more broadly in the promotion of academic-industrial collaboration and technology transfer in the orthopaedic, craniofacial and dental material sectors, and he is very much involved in the development educational programmes at all levels. He is a past President of the UK Society for Biomaterials, and until recently a member of the Council of TERMIS-EU.
