Tissue and Cell Engineering Society (TCES), 2016

Tissue and Cell Engineering Society (TCES) has the aim of furthering knowledge, research and dissemination of information on cell and tissue engineering. Founded in 1999 by people coming from many different scientific disciplines and environments (industry, universities, research centres, government agencies) across the United Kingdom, TCES aims to promote the propagation of scientific information, stimulate the creation of research programmes, co-operate with other scientific organisations, and act as a source of expert information related to tissue and cell engineering.

The site was built in WordPress using the 'mobile first' design docterine, with the inclusion of News, Facebook and Twitter feeds in the home page. There is a separate login secured section for membership information and payments.

European Society of Biomechanics

The European Society of Biomechanics is a learned society founded in 1976 to encourage research, disseminate knowledge and promote progress in Biomechanics.

The new home-page design brings together an introduction to the society, alongside a calendar of events, news and a visual demonstration of the work the society is engaged in. It also offers a public platform for the ESBiomech's corporate members, and a private means for other members to get in contact with each other.

The package has been extended to offer conference archival facilities, and to offer secret ballots for members to elect their representatives in the society.

The site design has been updated to make it mobile friendly - the initial design being completed sometime before this bacame important!
