The group (about a dozen in total) and laboratory specialises in creating smart coatings, smart fibres, bubbles, vesicles, droplets, particles and capsules using a variety of new devices/processes invented in our laboratory.
This project will achieve transformations in X-ray tomography technology by enabling cellular level imaging anywhere in whole organisms including human bodies, providing insight at multiple anatomical levels.
HOAHub aims to create a physical and virtual Hub which uses the disruptive Hierarchical Phase-Contrast Imaging (HiP-CT) technique to scan whole human organs with local cellular resolution, producing a “Human Organ Atlas (HOA) in Health, Ageing and Disease”.
The Institute of Making is a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world: from makers of molecules to makers of buildings, synthetic skin to spacecraft, soup to diamonds, socks to cities.
Their research is focused on the biomechanics of bones and joints, particularly to understand the underlying mechanisms of growth, adaptation and repair, through the use of computational and experimental techniques.
