Dr Alexander Darlington from the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick has been awarded one of sixteen fellowships in the 20th cohort of Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships.
Scientists from WMG at the University of Warwick, led by Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, developed a 1cm by 1cm wireless artificial aquatic polyp, which can remove contaminants from water. Apart from cleaning, this soft robot could be also used in medical diagnostic devices by aiding in picking up and transporting specific cells for analysis.
A new method for engineering living materials called ‘MeniFluidics’, made by researchers at the University of Warwick could see a transformation in tissue engineering and bio-art, as well as new ways to research cellular interactions.
Midlands Medictech company Medherant in partnership to develop multiple new products with tech developed at University of Warwick
Midlands Medictech company Medherant has just this month (May 2020) signed a partnership agreement with Cambridge based Cycle Pharmaceuticals to develop multiple new products using Medherant technology developed by University of Warwick chemistry researchers. Coventry based Medherant’s TEPI Patch® Technology uses transdermal delivery technology (a patch that can simply be applied to the skin) and medicines for rare diseases combine to deliver significant quality-of-life benefits for patients.
