In 2011, she was awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellowship and moved to King's where her research focuses on developing biomaterials to modulate the physical and biological properties of the 3D cell niche to control stem cell differentiation for tissue engineering and disease modelling. Her work has been published in Nature Materials, Nature Biomedical Engineering, PNAS, and Biomaterials. Eileen has received funding awards from the Wellcome Trust, the MRC, the Rosetrees Trust, the Royal Society, and Orthopaedic Research UK, and is a recipient of both a Wellcome Image Award (2016) and an MIT Koch Institute Image Award (2016).
