PSI Sandpit: Biomedical engineering and clinical solutions
|Dates:||28 February 2022|
|Times:||10:00 - 16:00|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Organiser:||Photon Science Institute|
|Who is it for:||University staff|
This sandpit will highlight the techniques available for the characterisation of biomedical devices from the internal microstructure to interactions on the atomic and molecular scale at surfaces and interfaces. We would like to invite colleagues from FMBH and related disciplines to highlight clinical issues where they think a more thorough understanding of the underlying science may be targeted by the techniques available in the Photon Science Institute.
This event is one of 3 sandpits which the Photon Science Institute (PSI) is hosting to explore research collaboration opportunities between the PSI and biomedical researchers. The 3 sandpits are listed below:
• Biomedical engineering and clinical solutions (28th Feb)
• Spectroscopy and imaging in biological systems (2nd March)
• Probing dynamics and quantum effects in biology (9th March)
The aim of the sandpit events is to generate proposals for new UoM collaborations.
£15k seed-funding is available (plus additional funding for X-ray CT experiments) which will be awarded to the top-ranked proposals. Each event will consist of short talks by PSI academics introducing capabilities and we are inviting presentations from biomedical researchers to explain their research challenges. A networking session will follow to discuss potential proposals. Lunch will be provided.
If you would like to attend one or more of the sandpit events, please register using the link below by 22nd February via Eventbrite indicating if you would like to present your biological research challenges.
