Grant helps uni carry out global medical studies
SWANSEA is set to become home to a hub for global medical technologies and nanohealth thanks to a new award.
A new £500,000 grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) will help Swansea University's Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) and Human Computer Interactions research group take a leap forward.
The hub first came into being on April 1, which is designed to help with staff exchanges over a year and also to build on current and new research projects with Swansea's international research partners.
Professor Steve Wilks, head of the College of Science at Swansea University, said: "Much international collaboration has been forged through CNH's activity, particularly with leading international institutions in Medical Technologies and NanoHealth. For example, Swansea has a long standing relationship with institutions in the United States including Texas A&M University, the University of Pennsylvania, Rice University and The Methodist Hospital Research Institute in Houston.

"Developments have included point of care technologies in the detection and analysis of abnormal blood clotting; toxicological impact of natural and engineered nanoparticles; and smart systems to deliver drugs."
The hub will allow researchers to share their knowledge and work out solutions about key health issues to countries ranging from China, France and the USA. It will also help strengthen work in four key areas technology development, safety assessment, therapeutics, and human factors engineering.
Professor Wilks added the investment would help its researchers to improve people's quality of life by allowing them to manage their own treatment within the comfort of their own homes.
