the form of MEMS have made an impact on solutions for active sensing in
healthcare and other application fields. Capitalising on this technology and
combining novel sensing and signal processing technologies, the research group
aim to produce advanced information sensors capable of outputting information
and discriminating measurements on a sub-micron basis. The techniques will
combine novel sensing methods, MEMS and Nanotechnology. Working at this scale to
discriminate distributive cell behaviour, characteristics and structure will
enable greater understanding of cell processes and offer the opportunity to
radically improve healthcare.
This combination of
novel technologies integrating new approaches to sensing give the potential to
produce powerful devices to discriminate diseases in real time and offer new
therapies that are currently difficult or impossible to achieve.
