Pushing the Resolution Limits of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Understanding the structural dynamics of complex molecules is vital to advancing our knowledge of materials, medicine and diseases, yet there are few techniques which can capture motions at high enough speeds or resolution to understand the underlying behaviour. Read more

Structure and function of the mitochondrial DNA network in trypanosomatid parasites

  Research Group: Edinburgh Infectious Diseases
Project offered for Ker Memorial PhD Studentship in Infectious Diseases at the University of Edinburgh. Trypanosomatid parasites cause devastating diseases in humans and their livestock, and these diseases predominantly affect low- and middle-income countries. Read more

Understanding Atomic-scale Friction

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
This project, based in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds, aims to investigate the origins of friction at the scale of the a single atom, using cutting-edge atomic resolution scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) and non-contact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM) techniques, in the group of Dr Adam Sweetman.  .

Develop single-cell biomechanical nanotools for novel cardiovascular mechanobiology and cancer immunotherapy

In view of the high complexity and dynamics of protein complexes that perform important physiological functions, it is difficult to visualise and characterise their kinetic and signaling processes on single living cells using traditional biochemical and biophysical techniques. Read more

Scanning probe microscopy of nanostructure directed process and mechanisms at surfaces

Nano-structuring of materials allows for the development of novel physical properties due to changes in electronic structure, unusual interactions with the environment due to molecular confinement effects in nanopores and the ability to direct processes and mechanisms in desired directions by combining these effects.

Investigating amorphous solid dispersions prepared via hot-melt extrusion and explore their applications within the framework of additive manufacturing

Poor drug solubility presents a major challenge in drug product development of oral solid dosage (OSD) forms. However, many new development compounds exhibit poor solubility and only a few of them reach market approval. Read more

Hydrogen Fuelled Internal Combustion Engines – Friction, Wear and Lubrication Challenges in a Hydrogen Environment.

Background. To help address climate change, improve air quality and meet increasingly stringent government regulations, the automotive industry is increasingly exploring the use of hydrogen as an alternative to conventional fossil fuels. Read more

Rheological and mechanical behaviour of fibre composite with nanobiocomposites matrix for aerospace applications

The applications of nanocomposite materials derived from natural biopolymer components gaining more attraction because of their renewability, biodegradability, flexibility, and their capability of novel functionalities. Read more

Investigation of white etching crack damage mechanism in wind turbine gearbox bearings

Modern wind turbine gearbox bearings are failing prematurely, by white structure flaking and axial cracking, which may be caused by the propagation of subsurface white etching cracks (WECs). Read more

Next-Generation Hydrogen Production Using Polymer Nanotemplates

Hydrogen vehicles are already on the road, and most ICE vehicles can combust hydrogen with simple alterations. The byproduct of combustion is water vapour, making hydrogen one of the most sustainable fuels available. Read more
