Researchers from the School of Engineering have devised a fabric dressing which could improve wound recovery for patients suffering from burns or skin grafts. Dr Norbert Radacsi, Antonios Keirouz and Mei Zhang from the School’s Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP), and Dr Anthony Callanan from the Institute of Bioengineering (IBioE), are part of a team which produced this super-thin 'artificial skin' using nanoscale technology.

The School's Dr Javier Escudero is part of a team of researchers behind an innovative dementia diagnosis method based on machine learning. The method was proposed in a research article which has since been recognised as the top paper published in 2018 by BJGP Open, a journal edited by the Royal College of General Practitioners.
