mm-wave technology is an important area of research in medical treatments and it has been known to have properties to stop bleeding in internal wounds. However its ability to generate hyperthermia in biological tissues has many uses and targeted drug delivery is one the most important application if one can achieve it through endoscopic means. This new research is to develop the mm-wave endoscopic device and phantoms to prove the concept for clinical applications. The results of this research will have far reaching impacts in clinical applications of medical devices.
Design and manufacture a new mm-wave off board endoscopic tool and its applications for range of medical applications using phantoms.
Cranfield Defence and Security (CDS) provide unique educational opportunities to the Defence and security sectors of both public and private sector organisations.
Based at the UK Defence Academy at Shrivenham in Oxfordshire and at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, CDS is the academic provider to the UK Ministry of Defence for postgraduate education at the Defence Academy, training in engineering, science, acquisition, management and leadership.
As the project develops, we expect intellectual property development leading to patents and high impact publications.
It is expected that all of the results will be published in high impact conferences and peer reviewed journals. This would allow several opportunities to present our work at conferences, workshops and exhibitions. Also there will be some travel would be required to do specialist experiments at other locations in UK.
This PhD program will enable you to develop a new concept to deliver the needs of medical device markets and in that way it is very much rooted in developing new medical technologies with potential for spin out company from academia to business.
