Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Design, synthesis and applications of polymers and polymer colloids

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
The Fielding research group is based in the Department of Materials at The University of Manchester. Our research involves the design, synthesis and applications of polymers and polymer colloids for use in various applications. Read more

A point-of-care biosensor for personalised medicine

Personalised medicine is heavily reliant on point-of-care biosensors. Such biosensors should be self-referenced i.e. able to measure analytes in biological samples that are complex mixtures and amid changes in ambient conditions (e.g. Read more

Polymer thin film preparation and optical modelling for infrared reflectometry, AFM-IR and infrared ellipsometry

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
The Edmondson research group is based in the Department of Materials at The University of Manchester. Our research sits at the interface of polymer chemistry and polymer characterisation, with particular expertise in. Read more

A novel approach to the generation and optimisation of sustainable powders for Metal Additive Manufacturing

3 Years full time 1st April 2021, 1st July 2021 or 1st October 2021. This PhD project will ignite an exciting new research area for the sustainable production, consumption and recycling of metallic materials for use in Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes. Read more

Micro-manufacturing of surface textures for enhanced electrosurgery

3 years full time 1st April 2021, 1st July 2021 or 1st October 2021. Electrosurgery is a medical procedure that uses an alternating and high frequency current (200 kHz-3.3 MHz) to either cut and/or coagulate tissues and achieve haemostasis. Read more

3D Bioprinting of Tissue Culture Scaffolds

3D scaffolds with excellent biocompatibility, biodegradability, sophisticated 3D structures and appropriate mechanical properties are particularly desired as in vitro models in biomedical research and are highly attractive in clinical applications (e.g., as nerve guidance conduits) However, fabricating such scaffolds is challenging.
