Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.

Atomically Thin Gold – Synthesis and Electronic Skin Application

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
We recently discovered a method for the fabrication of atomically thin gold nanosheets (AuNS) - the world’s thinnest free-standing gold. AuNS are flexible, transparent, conducting, and have superior catalytic and enzymatic performance over other gold nanoparticles. Read more

Multifunctional hybrid porous silica nanoparticles for stimuli-responsive delivery of novel antimicrobial agents

The rapid emergence of multidrug-resistant superbugs poses a serious global health and socioeconomic threat. This project builds upon our expertise in the facile and scalable synthesis of novel, highly uniform porous silica nanoparticles for drug delivery. Read more

Pushing the Speed 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

Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials. Read more

Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting. Read more

Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing. Read more

Artificial cells with biochemical clocks: oscillatory enzyme reactions in confinement

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Artificial cells are engineered materials that mimic one or more of the functions of living biological cells. Oscillating chemical processes are common within living organisms to control a variety of essential processes, including the metabolism of sugars and the release of hormones. Read more
