Singaporean delegation explore innovative Birmingham research in cold and power

Description
The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Birmingham hosted a visiting delegation from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore on Friday 30 January. The College welcomed delegates for a day of discussion and to explore its projects focusing on 'cold and power'. In attendance were; Professor Tay Beng Kang, Associate Dean (Research), College of Engineering: Professor Louis Phee, Chair, School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; and Professor Alessandro Romagnoli, Assistant Professor, School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Artificial proteins could bring the next biological revolution – starting with MRI

Description
Scientists and engineers have looked to nature for their inspiration for centuries. The field of biomimetics uses ideas from nature to solve complex human challenges. Synthetic biology, a more recent concept, focuses on the design of artificial devices or systems with biological or "bio-like" functions. This covers a wide range of applications – but perhaps the most fascinating biological "device" we could wish to emulate is the protein.
