At the beginning of the year MAPS enterprise, with the support of an Innovation & Enterprise Impact Acceleration Award (IAA) (BIP IND 2017-20) produced 5 short videos showcasing innovative and impactful research from different groups in the MAPS faculty. These videos were commissioned to highlight the important interdisciplinary research being undertaken within the faculty and showcase the expertise, and facilities on offer. It is hoped that these videos will help to lead to new partnership opportunities with industry and other external stakeholders.
Two of the videos in the series feature groups based in the LCN at UCL; i-sense led by Prof. Rachel McKendry and UCLQ led by Prof. John Morton. Both of whom have projects aligned with the government’s industrial strategy challenge. To view the videos from these two groups please click on the links.
In the UCLQ video, Prof. John Morton and Prof. Paul Warburton discuss the breath of UCLQ research and educational activities as well as the opportunities for engagement with UCLQ. Dr Lia Li also talks about how her work led to the founding of a spinout company.
The i-sense video touches on the group’s work into developing technologies, systems, and working with end-users to engineer a new generation of agile and globally impactful early warning sensing systems for infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance. Amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic, i-sense’s focus on digital health systems to test, track treat infections is particularly timely.
If you are interested in finding out more about a project or collaborating please get in touch. Contact details for each project are available at the end of each video.
The other videos in the series feature;
The MAFuMA project led by Prof. Asterios Gavriilidis from the Department of Biochemical Engineering is on Smart Manufacturing of Nanoparticles for Healthcare.
The Juiced Energy Hub is led by Prof. Jawwad Darr in the Department of Chemistry and focuses on the discovery and scale-up manufacture of energy materials for devices.
Dr Alex Diaz from the Department of Mathematics and CORU leads the DATA-CENTRIC project, its work centres on delivering more traceable, transparent and more efficient computational simulations, which are relevant to a number of industries.
