Illuminating tissue barriers leading to treatment resistance and bowel cancer recurrence

Colorectal cancers are typically treated by chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgical removal. However, despite treatment, up to 50% of patients develop recurrence of disease – that is, the cancer returns either close to the original site or having spread to other places in the body. Read more

Understanding how formulation parameters influence the performance of novel capsule formulations

Two-piece capsules are used in dry powder inhalers (DPIs) as a single-dose container for powdered pharmaceutical formulations. These formulations contain active pharmaceutical ingredients to treat pulmonary conditions, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Read more

Computational imaging in low resource settings and democratisation of MRI

The Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing (BASP) laboratory at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh (HWU), headed by Professor Yves Wiaux is recruiting a PhD student for research on computational imaging in low-resource settings for MRI democratisation. Read more
