Understanding how to stop ice growth with amino acids
The GibsonGroup, working with the Sosso Group in chemistry have demonstrated that simple amino acids can slow the recrystallisation of ice. Ice recrystallisation inhibition (IRI) is normally associated with ice binding proteins, but the team show that amino acids can also achieve this. Using a combination of experiments and modelling the importance of the structure of the amino acid is explored, and the relative role of ice binding investigated.

A new drug to lower cholesterol which was appraised by Warwick Evidence will be made available to hundreds of thousands of NHS patients
A new Patient Public Community Hub has been launched within Academic Primary Care, with content developed with NIHR Research Champions (public volunteers who raise awareness about research ) from the West Midlands. The hub is aimed at helping to create an environment that makes local health research results more accessible to the public and provides opportunities for local involvement and engagement with health research. It's being developed as part of a qualitative research project by Eleanor Hoverd, Research Nurse and NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellow at UAPC, supervised by Professor Sophie Staniszewska and Professor Jeremy Dale.
We've just launched a new network, in partnership with University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) and Bruntwood SciTech, called the West Midlands Health and Wellbeing Innovation Network. The Network will find and develop the next big innovations in healthcare transformation.
Using the expertise and resources of the University and hospital, businesses in the healthcare, technology and wellbeing sectors can benefit and grow, and ultimately help us to take on new and existing healthcare challenges. The Network has also received £100,000 funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority's Innovation Programme to create and develop responses to health challenges that will impact our region. Read on below to find out more about the Network.
