Biomaterials Discovery

Next Generation Ideas

Post Docs and PhD students from the EPSRC Programme Grant in Next Generation Biomaterials Discovery presented their scientific ideas to our panel of experts last week, as the final part of an Ideas Generation process which was facilitated by Prof Simon Mosey and Dr Andy Wells.


Ingenuity Workshops allowed the Post Docs and PhD students to generate ideas relating to the Programme Grant. They divided into teams, generated their ideas and last week they gave their presentations. The Expert Panel judged the ideas presented based on: scientific creativity and novelty, presentation skills, project delivery and consideration of translational route. The panel members were: Morgan Alexander, Amir Ghaemmaghami, Ricky Wildman (The University of Nottingham), Rachel O'Reilly (The University of Warwick), David Farrar (Xiros) and Rob Quirk (Locate Therapeutics). Of the 3 teams of Post Docs and PhD students, the panel selected Arsalan Latif, Blessing Mukonoweshuro, Qin Hu, Simon Haas, Joris Meurs, Elisa Tarsitano, Charlotte Henshaw and Alessandra Travanut as the winning team. Their prizes were locally produced drinks, cheeses and biscuits!
