A strong attendance from Leeds biotribology researchers to the TriboUK 2022 conference hosted by Imperial College London.
The University of Leeds walked away with both of the 1st prizes! Sarah Crossland won the top presentation prize for her talk on the measurement of foot plantar skin strain using digital image methods, and Rob Elkington won the top poster prize for his poster on polyelectrolyte functionalised PEEK for focal cartilage resurfacing.
