Congratulations to Neil for making news with his latest co-authored publication in the Physics of Fluids.
‘New research reports advances in measuring blood flow velocity in deep tissue’ –Thore’s work features in a news release!.
Thore’s paper on Photoacoustic flowmetry using a medical ultrasound scanner is out!
Our new paper (with Dr Song form Division of Surgery) on Semi-interpenetrating network hyaluronic acid microgel delivery systems in micro-flow is now online in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. Well done to Andrea and Qiqing for the microfluidic work.
Jennika Vadera, our summer intern, has been shortlisted by the faculty for best summer project. Jennika worked in our lab over the summer developing a microfluidic flow cytometer for red blood cells. Good luck with the presentation Jennika.
Our new Physics of Fluids paper on local viscosity distribution in bifurcating blood flows is now online.The paper applies a viscosity model developed by Dr Stathis Kaliviotis to our blood flow data in a T junction channel to obtain distribution of viscosity by taking into account the aggregate structures that Stathis has detected!
Congratulations to Thore for having his first journal paper accepted in the Journal of Biomedical Optics.
STEM for Britain for Mirko and Thore. Congratulations to Mirko and Thore who were selected to present their work in the Pariament!
This month we welcome Professors Renato Machado Cotta and Carolina Naveira Cotta from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Renato is funded by a prestigious Leverhulme visiting professorship and Carolina by a scholarship from CAPES/Brasil. Renato and Carolina will be working on novel experimental and theoretical aspects of microscale heat and mass transfer.
What a fantastic Christmas lunch and bouldering experience to end the year! Thank you Gaia and Thore for organising!.
Congratulations to Mirko whose aortic dissection paper just appeared in J. Royal Society Interface.
