For one night only - professorial lecture is web-screened live

An international audience is set to log on to an inaugural lecture by Staffordshire University’s newly appointed Professor of Clinical Biomechanics.

Professor Nachiappan Chockalingam will be delivering his professorial lecture entitled ‘Feet: A Feat of Engineering’ at Staffordshire University’s Television Centre this evening at 6pm.

And the event, which is among the highlights of the University’s Health Factor 09 programme, will be filmed and web-streamed live to colleagues, clinicians and industry contacts worldwide.

As Professor of Clinical Biomechanics in the Faculty of Health, Nachi directs the Movement Analysis Laboratory and leads the biomechanics team. His research interests span the general area of biomechanics and gait analysis and he has a special interest in foot and footwear biomechanics.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Paul Richards, who will be welcoming visitors to the event, said: “Nachi’s work in this field typifies the kind of research which we are committed to. It is about improving the lives and wellbeing of individuals in the community, informing professional practice and drawing together the expertise and experience of academics and practitioners to develop new thinking and new techniques.”
 
“With key links in the health care sector in the UK and internationally, Nachi has worked hard to forge and maintain the links with industry that are so vital to his work and to the University’s success.”
