Red blood cells play a critical role in the human body, transporting oxygen to our cells. Anomalies in the way these cells flow through the body are associated with many serious diseases worldwide, and as such, are of great interest to researchers seeking to tackle some of society’s most significant healthcare challenges. Academics from the School of Engineering have co-authored a new paper in the Biophysical Journal which reports an unexpected discovery in the way these blood cells flow and arrange themselves under laboratory conditions, with important implications for future experimental research in this field.
Dr Camilla Thomson, the School’s Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy, and alumna Clare Lavelle, who is Head of Energy Consultancy at Arup, have been named in the Top 50 Women in Engineering in the UK by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES).
