Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only) 
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details 
Add or update your email address, telephone number and postal address in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Use your University email address for your primary email. 

You can link to your Google Scholar, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts through Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’.  In the 'Links' section, use the 'Add link' button. 

Create or connect your ORCID ID in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’ and then 'Create or Connect your ORCID ID'.

Accepting PhD applicants (for researchers only) 
Choose to show whether you’re currently accepting PhD applicants or not in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. In the 'Portal details' section, select 'Yes' or 'No' to indicate your choice. 


Dr Rahul Tare is a Lecturer in Musculoskeletal Science and Bioengineering in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Rahul’s research interests include human stem cells, skeletal development and tissue engineering primarily, cartilage tissue engineering. Rahul’s interdisciplinary research harnesses human stem cells (bone marrow-derived skeletal stem cells, articular cartilage-derived progenitor cells, embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells), natural and synthetic biomaterials, and advanced bioreactor technologies to tissue engineer 3D cartilage grafts for the repair of articular cartilage defects caused by daily wear-and-tear or trauma. If the articular cartilage defects are not repaired, progressive cartilage degeneration causes osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis affecting ~9 million people in the UK and ~630 million individuals worldwide. Rahul’s research also seeks to gain insight into the pathogenesis of debilitating skeletal diseases such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis by elucidating the mechanisms that regulate skeletal development.

To date, Rahul has successfully supervised 15 PhD students to completion (Primary Supervisor to 5 PhD students), who have gone on to successful careers in academia, industry and Medicine. Rahul's research has been widely published in high-impact journals (over 50 peer-reviewed original research articles, reviews and book chapters; more than 4000 citations) and he holds two patents. The cartilage tissue engineering work has been covered by the BBC and New Scientist and widely published in high-impact, peer-reviewed journals. Notably, the research article on cartilage generation using human embryonic stem cells was one of the top 100 downloaded cell and molecular biology papers for Scientific Reports in 2021 and featured in a Nature Portfolio collection entitled, Stem Cells: from single cells to the clinic (June 2022). The research article on the application of acoustofluidics for cartilage tissue engineering was included in the top 30 most downloaded articles published in Lab on a Chip in 2014.

Rahul teaches on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Personal Academic Tutor to a number of students. Rahul also serves as the Deputy Programme Director of the MRes in Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine and contributes to the design, organisation, teaching and delivery of the various modules in the programme.

Potential PhD candidates and researchers interested in stem cells, skeletal development and skeletal tissue engineering are encouraged to contact Rahul.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.

You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
