Researchers from the School of Engineering have devised a fabric dressing which could improve wound recovery for patients suffering from burns or skin grafts. Dr Norbert Radacsi, Antonios Keirouz and Mei Zhang from the School’s Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP), and Dr Anthony Callanan from the Institute of Bioengineering (IBioE), are part of a team which produced this super-thin 'artificial skin' using nanoscale technology.
To celebrate International Women in Engineering Day, we interviewed staff, students and alumnae from our female engineering community. The following is a Q&A with Sarah Graham who studied her Bachelors and PhD in the School, and currently works as Transmission Infrastructure Package Manager with EDP Renewables.
