Pioneering UK company Adaptix is at the centre of a major £1million joint initiative that is using technology designed to search for stars in distant galaxies to develop a portable 3D medical x-ray machine for earlier cancer detection..
Nine innovative and cutting-edge science projects between the UK and the developing world will soon be brought to life – and will tackle global challenges such as access to healthcare, protecting ecosystems and food sustainability.
Potential future leaders in science and innovation have been awarded a funding boost by STFC to help them realise their research ambitions.
A team of UK scientists are researching how to apply drone technology to prevent the spread of a devastating fungal disease among one of the world’s best-loved and most valuable crops – coffee.
A newly launched research project brings together African researchers with a team from the UK’s Diamond Light Source synchrotron research facility to focus on two key areas crucial to development in Africa – energy and healthcare.
UK astrophysicists are gearing up to resume the search for gravitational waves, the ripples in spacetime caused by some of the universe’s most spectacular events, after substantial upgrades to the three global detectors mean that they will be able to survey an even larger volume of space than ever before for powerful, wave-making events, such as the collisions of black holes.
Doctors and scientists from the UK and Africa have united in a bid to develop medical linear accelerators for the developing world and increase the survival rate for its cancer patients.
The LHCb experiment has announced the first ever observation of CP violation in the decays of charm mesons. This represents a milestone in particle physics and UK physicists have been at the heart of this research.
Industry, local government and science are joining forces to improve productivity and jobs growth in the North West. The “Mersey Basin” collaboration has won £50,000 seed funding from the Government’s Industrial Strategy to help develop a full bid for up to £50 million.
A major new physics facility near Chicago is expected to have UK technology at its heart, and lead to significant spin-off opportunities for UK companies.
