- Drs James Andrews, James Bowen and David Cheneler have developed a model which ensures accurate measurement of the mechanical properties of soft materials. Description of the behaviour of biological tissues, individual cells, and organic polymers has applications in cancer detection, tissue engineering and biomedical research. Their model applies to a wide range of instrumental techniques, from millimetre-scale mechanical testers to nanometre-scale optical tweezers.
- Irresistible Materialsis a spinout company from the University of Birmingham that began operations in 2010 and aims to commercialise novel fullerene materials for applications in the semiconductor industry. It was formed by the entrepreneur and alumnus David Ure together with the three academic founders: Dr Alex Robinson, Professor Jon Preece, and Professor Richard Palmer. Dr.Robinson explains the team's research and the journey from idea to business.
- The guillemot bird and their remarkable eggs have been making the headlines lately. Former Birmingham bio-scientist Dr Steve Portugal and current Chemical Engineer Dr James Bowen reveal insights into the discovery and their impressions about these beguiling birds.
There are many ways you can get involved in the School, your relationship with us doesn't end with graduation.
