The University of Manchester was reconstituted in 2004 with the dissolution of Victoria University and merger of The University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. The reformed university is a member of the Russell Group and the NB Group for collaborative research. Throughout the history of the University of Manchester going back to 1824, 23 Nobel Laureates have been affiliated with Manchester. The student body at the undergraduate, graduate and professional degree level is over 40,000 students. Notable faculties include, Medicine, Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science, Nursing, Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences which include material science and aerospace and engineering.
Protons fuel graphene prospects
Graphene, impermeable to all gases and liquids, can easily allow protons to pass through it, University of Manchester researchers have found.
Secret of extinct British marine reptile uncovered
The fossil had been in the collections of Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery for more than 30 years until Dean Lomax (25) palaeontologist and Honorary Scientist at The University of Manchester, uncovered its hidden secrets.
Archaeologists defy Isis militants by finding new antiquities in Iraq
University of Manchester archaeologists are continuing to make significant new discoveries near the ancient city of Ur despite efforts by Islamic State militants to 'culturally cleanse' Iraq of its ancient relics.
How tuna stay warm with cold hearts
Scientists at The University of Manchester, working with colleagues at Stanford University in America, have discovered how prized bluefin tuna keep their hearts pumping during temperature changes that would stop a human heart. ...
Martian meteorite yields more evidence of the possibility of life on Mars
(Phys.org) —The finding of a 'cell-like' structure, which investigators now know once held water, came about as a result of collaboration between scientists in the UK and Greece. Their findings are published in the latest ...
New species of electrons can lead to better computing
Electrons that break the rules and move perpendicular to the applied electric field could be the key to delivering next generation, low-energy computers, a collaboration of scientists from the University of Manchester and ...
'Segregated' Britain more diverse and unequal than thought
Fifty years on from the first Race Relations Act, new research from The University of Manchester and UCL finds that so-called 'segregated' Britain is both more diverse - and home to far wider inequalities – than originally ...
How does a machine smell? Better than it did
Every odor has its own specific pattern which our noses are able to identify. Using a combination of proteins coupled to transistors, for the first time machines are able to differentiate smells that are mirror images of ...
Layered graphene sandwich for next generation electronics
Sandwiching layers of graphene with white graphene could produce designer materials capable of creating high-frequency electronic devices, University of Manchester scientists have found.
Computer model explains how animals select actions with rewarding outcomes
The model could provide new insights into the mechanisms behind motor disorders such as Parkinson's Disease. It may also shed light on conditions involving abnormal learning, such as addiction.
