UK Research and Innovation has awarded £3 million to support six research networks that will investigate solutions to air pollution.
International researchers have used the newest instrument at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to form and study interlocked self-assembled rings, made solely from one molecular ingredient. This could lead to the development of new materials in the future and has the potential to advance the development of molecular machines.
One of the instruments used to produce the images captured on board the European Space Agency's (ESA) solar orbiter spacecraft, was designed and built by the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) RAL space.
New research from the UK shows that antibodies derived from llamas are able to neutralise the SARS-CoV-2 virus in lab tests.
Technicians, engineers and scientists from STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory have helped deliver 13,437 ventilators as part of Ventilator Challenge UK, more than doubling the stock available to the NHS.
Congratulations to Rachel Buckley, a leading technician at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory, who has been made an Honorary Fellow by the Institute of Physics, its highest honour.
The world’s largest space incubation programme for space tech start-ups will extend to the new Space Park Leicester in the East Midlands, in a drive to support the vibrant, growing regional space clusters across the UK.
On August 14 last year, the US-based National Science Foundation's LIGO, part -funded by the STFC, and the European Virgo detector picked up a gravitational wave signal from the merger of two astronomical objects.
An update to the European Strategy for Particle Physics announced today will guide UK priorities in the coming years within the global research landscape. The key scientific priorities are the detailed study of the Higgs boson and the continued exploration of the high-energy frontier, both seen as two crucial and complementary ways to address the leading open questions in particle physics.
