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.
Researchers at The University of Manchester have developed the world's first handheld SORS device that can detect fake spirits, such as vodka and whisky, whilst still in their bottles.
Scientists at The University of Manchester have created the world's first 'molecular robot' that is capable of performing basic tasks including building other molecules.
Scientists have discovered traces of life more than half-a-billion years old that could change the way we think about how all animals evolved on earth.
Scientists from the UK and Germany have discovered the largest Ichthyosaurus on record and found it was pregnant at the time of death.
A major study led by The University of Manchester has discovered that so called 'lonely' microbes, those living at low population densities, are more likely to mutate causing higher rates of antibiotic resistance.
From smartphones to supercomputers, the growing need for smaller and more energy efficient devices has made higher density data storage one of the most important technological quests.
Last week, a van was driven into pedestrians on Las Ramblas in Barcelona, killing 13 and injuring at least 130 people, and the driver then killed a 14th victim in order to steal his car and escape. Later in the same day, ...
A new understanding of the physics of conductive materials has been uncovered by scientists observing the unusual movement of electrons in graphene.
Researchers from The University of Manchester are using polystyrene particles rather than expensive polymers to make the next generation of solar cells, which are used to make solar panels, more stable and even cheaper.
The rapid development of wearable technology has received another boost from a new development using graphene for printed electronic devices.
