Knowledge Mobilisation Fellowship for Senior Research Fellow
A Senior Research Fellow in the ORC is celebrating after being awarded a Knowledge Mobilisation Fellowship in Healthcare Technologies.
Dr Collin Sones received the joint award from the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Institute for Life Sciences.
The grant, which spans an 18 month period, is for his project on laser-printable point of care sensors for low-cost medical diagnosis and disease monitoring which will be held in conjunction with colleagues from Health Sciences and Medicine.
Collin said: “The award is recognition of the huge impact laser-printed, paper-based biosensors will be able to make towards saving human lives; making possible rapid, remote and real-time diagnosis of many targeted diseases at an early stage from the comfort of a patient’s bedside, without the need for either specialised equipment or trained medical personnel.”
