Mark Thompson on tendon mechanics and the 2014 International Scientific Tendon symposium

We are talking tendons again in this podcast because the next International Scientific Tendinopathy Symposium has been scheduled for September 5 and 6 in Oxford, UK. This exciting event follows on from two successful conferences in Vancouver in 2012 and Umea in 2010. The consensus paper from the Vancouver conference is open access in the June 2013 edition of BJSM [http://bit.ly/13fLIN1].In this podcast I am talking to with Dr Mark Thompson, a biomedical engineer from Oxford University, who leads the Oxford Mechanobiology Group. Amongst other things he is working with Prof Andy Carr, who has a large number of publications particularly on the rotator cuff tendon.Mark discusses the mechanics of tendon and tendinopathy, and how mechanics contribute to the clinical perspectives of the condition.
