Cutting-edge research carried out by Birmingham's Professor John Bridgeman could make a significant difference: he and his team have been working on a quick, novel and robust way of determining water quality, and have developed an optical water-testing device that has the potential to save millions of lives.

Lighting up molecular interactions with metals: New approaches to improving diagnosis and drug delivery

Description
Early diagnosis and effective drug delivery is often the key to successfully treating potentially life-threatening diseases. Professor Zoe Pikramenou's pioneering research is leading on the design of molecules and nanosized labels which can track and direct biomolecular processes, which could have huge impact on the diagnosis and treatment of serious illness.

What next at the Large Hadron Collider?

Description
It is rare for an academic discipline to double the observable landscape that it's able to study, but that's what's currently happening in particle physics. Over the past two years, around 400 engineers and technicians have together put in about a million hours to prepare the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to produce collisions between protons at almost twice the energy previously attained.
