Nanoscale Science and Technology research students in nanoLAB cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. This gives you the chance to thrive on interdisciplinary challenges, collaborate with industrial partners and even create your own spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.
MPhil supervision is available in: micro and nanoscale design, fabrication, manufacturing and manipulation; top-down and bottom-up fabrication; nanoscale materials and electronics; applications of nano and microelectronics in medical science, including cell biology, neuroscience, human genetics and ageing; polymers; self-assembly; chemistry of nanoscale systems; biomolecular engineering - microfluids, bioprobes and biosensor systems, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and devices.
