You will be taught by leading academics, who investigate some of the most important issues on the planet today. Their research informs their teaching, and as a fourth year MSci student you will perform a novel research project in their groups. Here they discuss some of the cutting-edge research they do on sustainable materials, energy, recycling, drug resistance and speeding up detection of disease
- Creating advanced materials using the principles of nature to improve healthcare solutions and energy storage.
- Improving the sustainability and reducing the ecological impact of everyday materials.
- Making materials from molecular and nanoscale building blocks which have very specific properties.
- Developing ways to replace and recycle critical elements.
- Establishing a Lithium-ion battery recycling centre in the UK.
- Improving battery lifetimes, effectiveness and efficiency to support the development of new technologies, from phones to electric cars.
- Creating technologies to facilitate personalised healthcare.
- Developing nanotechnologies to allow quicker and earlier diagnosis of diseases.
- Moving testing from laboratories into doctor’s surgeries to streamline diagnosis.
- Developing molecular scale diagnostics to improve early cancer detection.
- Discovering new drug molecules and identifying how they fight disease.
- Overcoming drug resistance for diseases such as tuberculosis.
