The information on this website was derived from a Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (FEPS) Health Scoping questionnaire and Faculty and Asset Mapping Exercise (FAME).
Directing the FEPS Health Scoping questionnaire has helped us understand which medical indications our engineers and physical scientists are working on, as well as their research funding and resources.Professor Philip Evans, CVSSP and NPL Professor of Medical Radiation Imaging
Directing the Faculty and Asset Mapping Exercise (FAME) has brought together researchers across faculties, disciplines and specialisations to share knowledge and communicate their achievements both internal and external to the University.Prof Carol Lane, Director of Faculty and Asset Mapping Innovation for Health Programme
