EPSRC CDT in Aerosol Science - Development of a Quartz Enhanced Photoacoustic Spectrometer for Soot Aerosol Detection

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Monday, 15 March, 2021

The nature of light-absorbing particles in the atmosphere represent one of largest uncertainties in climate models. Soot (black carbon) absorbs light across the visible spectrum, and quantifying its presence in the atmosphere is important both for air quality as well as climate impact. Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS) is a well-established method for sensitive and selective detection of trace gases as well as for the measurement of aerosol particles.

EPSRC DTP Studentship- Bioengineered Vascular Grafts Derived from Tubular Collagen Constructs

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Saturday, 20 February, 2021

Current vascular bypass conduits have drawbacks (availability, patency and functionality) limiting their routine clinical adoption. The project focuses on the development of a bioengineered vascular scaffold that maintains patency and structural integrity after grafting, allowing integration/remodelling in vivo. The aims of the project are:

EPSRC DTP Studentship - Exploring digital technologies for adaptive supply chain design for patient-centric healthcare

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Monday, 1 March, 2021

The EPSRC Doctoral Training Programme studentship aims to explore the adoption of digital technologies, such as the use of reconfigurable small scale production and supply platforms, supply chain data triggers, smart devices and companion diagnostics, within the context of adaptive supply chains for individual patient-centric healthcare. New treatments are emerging that suggest personalised treatments are highly desirable for several therapeutic areas but currently manufacturing supply systems cannot provide these products and services cost-effectively.
