Leeds has a unique capability in research towards clinical and commercial translation of biological scaffolds in musculoskeletal and cardiovascular applications. The expertise is in the development of functional processes and analysis methods of biological scaffolds. This is based upon experience and know-how of our investigators, and their understanding of tissues based ... More info
Very recent developments at Nottingham have resulted in creation of a Platform Technology for manufacture of microspheres from glass, glass-ceramic and ceramics.... More info
A second case of our ‘Process Structuring’ is micromoulding – high speed, high precision moulding of 3-d components typically with large surface area to volume ratios. The Polymer IRC at Bradford houses the international Polymer Micro & Nano Technology laboratory with Wittman Battenfeld MicroPower (x2, each 15 tonne clamp force) ... More info
The Polymer IRC at Bradford has unique worldwide experimental and modelling facilities for ‘process structuring’, in this first case for deformation processing of polymers in the solid phase. Our extensive range of processes, particularly die drawing (invented by us) allow us to obtain oriented materials in solid or hollow section ... More info
