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.
On Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 May, the Hewitt-Reese Spring School for Modelling Multiphase Flows took place in honour of two pioneering fluid dynamicists – the School’s Professor Jason Reese and Professor Geoff Hewitt of Imperial College London – who both passed away earlier this year.
Fifth year School students Tze Liang Chee (Electrical and Mechanical Engineering) and Nikolay Momchev (Electronics and Electrical Engineering), have won the Telegraph STEM Awards 2019 Innovation Challenge category for their proposal for a robotic strawberry picking device.
Earlier this month, on Tuesday 9 April, the Royal Society of Chemistry Scotland and North of England Electrochemistry Symposium 2019, also known as the “Butler Meeting”, was hosted at the School. Over 80 delegates gathered for the one-day symposium, which presented an opportunity for PhD students and PDRAs from across Scotland and the North of England to meet their peers and showcase their research in any field related to fundamental and applied electrochemistry.
