Background. Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) are one of the biggest problems facing global healthcare services. HAI affect more than 4 million patients across Europe, they are estimated to be responsible for more than 37,000 European deaths annually, and cause a huge financial burden to the NHS.
Near-infra red emitting surfaces for new diagnostic platforms
Prof Z Pikramenou
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project will develop new surfaces for diagnostic devices based on luminescence signal detection. A new approach will be used to make optically surfaces responsive surfaces using near infrared emitting metal complexes.
