Dr Timothy Holsgrove received an MEng in mechanical engineering from the University of Bath in 2006, and a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Bath in 2012, which investigated the complex loading of the spine by developing a custom six-axis spine simulator. He then undertook several post-doctoral projects relating to spinal loading and injury mechanisms in the Centre for Orthopaedics Biomechanics and the Sports, Health & Exercise Science groups at the University of Bath, where he is now a Visiting Lecturer.

In 2014 he took a research fellow position in the Spine Pain Research Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania, where he developed expertise in in-vivo testing, as well as continuing his interest in replicating the in-vivo loads of the spine in the laboratory environment.

Dr Holsgrove joined the University of Exeter in November 2016 as a Lecturer in Biomechanics & Bioengineering. He is part of the Biomedical Engineering Group and his research focuses on developing and implementing novel methods to understand spinal injuries, degeneration, and treatments. In 2017 he was awarded the Robin Ling Fellowship, which will develop research within the Hip Research Unit at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.

A PhD opportunity is now available as part of the strategic partnership between the Universities of Queensland and Exeter (QUEX) on the design, optimisation, and fabrication of patient-specific multi-phasic total disc replacements to address age-related degenerative disc disease.
