Projects per year
In my group, Materials for Health, we are developing advanced materials for transformative sustainable healthcare. Specifically, to develop materials that can detect and diagnose the presence of disease at point-of-care. Health and Well-being is the third goal of the UN Sustainability Development Goals, and our research is seeking to contribute to sustaining healthcare, democratising healthcare and tackling the ever increasing threat of antimicrobial resistance.
Current ongoing projects include:
- Artificial antibody materials for inflammatory maker detection.
- Microneedle and nanoneedle development for minimally invasive detection methods.
- Exosome separation for early detection of ovarian cancer.
- Dynamic force measurements of material/biomarker interactions.
- Therapeutic nanocomposite fibres for wound dressings.
