MRes mini-research projects

Poster session on interdisciplinary sensor research

The 2016-17 MRes mini-research projects are drawing to a close. Last Wednesday, oral presentations filled a whole morning and the afternoon’s poster session saw the students engaging with the research community at the Department of Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology.

This year the interdisciplinary projects crossed the Departments of Engineering, Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Materials Science and Geography, and the diversity of the field of “sensor” applications and technology is reflected in the choice of projects.

Examples of projects:

  • Therapeutic Antibody Protein Folding
  • Surface modification of Metal-Organic Frameworks
  • Detection and characterisation of amyloid protein strains using H-D exchange mass spec
  • Developing Cost-efficient Spectrometers for Real-time Biomedical Sensing
  • Use Förster resonance energy transfer to enhance the photophysical properties of an existing photo-modulatable fluorescent
  • High throughput imaging of amyloid fibril elongation and interactions using microfluidics
  • Dynamics of mechanotransduction in single motile cells
  • Lasers, rubidium and ultra-low magnetic fields: reducing the response time of an alkali-vapor magnetometer for ultra-low-field magnetic resonance
  • Development of a prototype sensing system to detect the frequency and magnitude of turbidity currents in Adventfjorden, Spitsbergen – a feasibility study
  • Modelling nonlinear behaviour in superconducting microresonators used in sensing applications in astronomy space science and quantum technologies
  • Novel 3-D Printed Platform Approach for Gas Sensing Development
  • Time of flight X-ray imaging
