Colour-changing burns dressing will help fight against antibiotic resistance
A 'smart' medical dressing, developed by our scientists, that changes colour when it detects infection will improve treatments for burns patients and help combat the global problem of antibiotic resistance by reducing the ...
Locusts interact with several neighbours to swarm together
Swarming locusts interact with at least two of their neighbours when aligning themselves in order to march in the same direction, says new research led by our mathematicians.
New spin on 'silicon valleytronics' could revolutionise future technologies
Latest research from scientists from our Department of Physics into cutting-edge 'spin physics' could herald the arrival of a revolutionary new technology – 'valleytronics'.
Surprisingly, low-toxin MRSA strains may be the real killer
The most serious MRSA infections could be those caused by superbugs which produce fewer toxins, as opposed to high toxin strains, according to surprise findings revealed today by scientists from the Department of Biology ...
New method for building on an atomic scale
UK scientists have pioneered a new way of manipulating several thousand atoms at a time, paving the way for building nanoscale electronic devices more quickly and easily at room temperature.
Why shaking hands matters (even when it's with a robot)
There's new evidence that shaking hands really does matter when it comes to striking the best deal in negotiations.
Research clarifies the physics of water repelling surfaces
Researchers have gained valuable insights into the behaviour of water on strongly hydrophobic (water-repelling) surfaces. Understanding this behaviour should help scientists develop new types of surfaces with applications ...
'Molecular sponge' advancement in storing hydrogen
Researchers at our University have discovered that hydrogen absorbed in specialised carbon nanomaterials can achieve extraordinary storage densities at moderate temperatures and pressures.
Beetle's antennae finds potential mates
Recent research from a team led by Dr Jonathan Cox shows how certain beetles use their antennae to locate potential mates. This is the first time scientists have studied molecule capture by the antennae of beetles.
Head and body lice read DNA differently
What makes head lice different from body lice had scientists scratching their heads as previous genetic studies failed to find any substantial differences between the two types of lice.
