To educate, inspire, and engage students by providing information about the various fields that together comprise "global health", offering divergent perspectives as well as outlining specific directions and potential projects for those interested in applying their expertise beyond the classroom setting.
Photonic hydrogels have emerged as rapid, reusable, and quantitative biosensors for application in point-of-care diagnostics. The advantages of photonic hydrogel sensors over conventional sensors is that they have label-free, continuous, reversible sensing capability that can be integrated with personalized medicine technologies. In this lecture, I overview (i) the principle of operation of biosensors that incorporate optical components, (ii) the syntheses of stimuli responsive hydrogels, (iii
This course gives students an introduction to bioscience and discusses example applications of biotechnology. It then focuses on the understanding and modelling of microbial and enzymatic reaction processes.
recognize fundamental cell types and describe their uses in biotechnology
describe the biological processes operating in cells and how these may be exploited in biotechnology
appreciate the current trends and directions in biotechnology
use semi-empirical methods to describe the stoichiometry and rates of microbial
ETECH Projects are run by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL), University of Cambridge Judge Business School to assess the commercial viability of novel technologies coming out of the departments of the University of Cambridge and local companies. ‘ETECH Projects’ are performed by teams of students from the University of Cambridge. These students either see themselves as would-be entrepreneurs, as those who will assess the commercial viability of business ideas, propositions or novel technologies in their career, or those who see themselves in a similar position
