  • Biopolymer coatings for enhanced endothelialisation of intra-vascular devices

    These fully synthetic biocompatible polymers support effective human endothelial cell growth and endothelialisation, whilst minimising platelet attachment. The polymer materials can be applied as a thin coating to intra‐vascular devices and have the potential to minimise problems associated with vas...

  • High Voltage Condition Monitoring

    Transformers play a key role in the transmission and distribution network, getting power from source to end-user, so any fault is critical and needs to be identified before any damage to the transformer or surrounding components leads to power black-out or catastrophic failure.

  • New DC/DC Converter for High Power DC Grids

    Researchers of the University of Aberdeen have developed a new DC/DC converter for high power DC grids that eliminates most of the drawbacks of alternative technologies (e.g. short circuits or commutation failures). It can help address bulk power transmission, integration of renewable energy sources...

  • Combination Treatment for MRSA Nasal Carriage and MRSA-infected Wounds

    The new treatment is a combination of a peptide (ranalexin) with bacteria cell wall-digesting protein (lysostaphin), which specifically targets and kills Staphylococcus aureus, including MRSA.

  • Low Carbon Futures (Overheating Risk Tool)

    The Low Carbon Futures project resulted in the creation of a tool for assessing the future performance of buildings in the UK in the face of an increasingly changing climate. Such changes need to be reflected in building design if those buildings are to function in the medium-long term.

  • Macrophage-based cell therapy to treat acute liver injury

    A novel cell-based therapeutic intervention to treat patients suffering from acute episodes of liver injury. When injected into patients showing acute or drug-induced liver injury, alternatively-activated macrophages could promote liver repair, by reducing cell death, stimulating hepatocyte prolifer...

  • Blocking substrate recruitment by DHHC-protein acyl transferase enzymes for therapeutic gain

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have discovered and validated a novel approach for targeting an important class of enzymes with wide activity and linkage to disease.
