Oxford scientists Professor Philipp Kukura, Professor Justin Benesch, Dr Gavin Young, and Daniel Cole have pioneered a new technique known as mass photometry (MP). MP is a revolutionary new method of analysing molecules. It enables the accurate mass measurement of single molecules in solution, in their native state and without the need for labels. This approach opens up new possibilities for bio analytics and research into the functions of biomolecules, with new applications in the world of gene and cell therapy.
When disaster strikes, its vital to understand how people will be affected – so that humanitarian aid can be effectively targeted. Researchers in the Department of Statistics have used EPSRC IAA funding to develop new and effective disaster risk models using open access datasets and machine learning techniques.
The development of quantum computing offers huge potential for social good. Researchers at the Department of Computer Science have been working with industry stakeholders to lay the groundwork for a ‘Responsible Innovation Hub’ to inform the future governance of this powerful emerging technology. With IAA support the team explored how approaches for RI and governance can help mitigate societal concerns and contribute to public trust in this novel technology.
From lab to application: developing pioneering technology to boost aircraft engine efficiency and lifespan
Researchers at the Department of Engineering Science have developed new approaches to cool high pressure blade tips in aviation – which will improve engine efficiency and lifespan, and cut carbon emissions.
EPSRC IAA funding has allowed researchers in the Department of Engineering Science to develop a new tool to help innovators navigate medical device regulation – helping to ensure new medical technologies comply with industry requirements and reach patients as fast as possible.
