Dr James Holder
Following his graduation with a B.Eng (Hons) in Clinical Engineering and Materials Science (Univ. Liverpool, 2000), James undertook an MSc in Medical Engineering at the University of Liverpool in 2001. This included taught modules, covering topics such as tissue device interactions and structural biomaterials, as well as a research project. His research project involved the the use of human osteoblasts to assess the bioactivity of bone screw materials in the development of biocomposites. Following his successful Masters programme he moved to the University of Cambridge to undertake his PhD studies in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy. The research programme was a joint initiative between the University and MIT in Boston with the objective of producing high porosity scaffolds with a chemistry optimised to induce a rapid rate of bone growth in areas of lost tissue. During his studies James gained experience in a range of skills and expertise in materials analysis and cell culture techniques. James is a Project Manager at Euram and co-ordinates the administrative and financial management of EU funded projects. He also authors proposals for national and European collaborative R&D projects, and leads contract negotiations for successful applications.
