Specific research areas include selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) for the trace gas analysis of breath and urine; medical photonics; medical diagnostics (including the use of biosensors, imaging and metabolic screening, the role of bio minerals in neurodegenerative brain diseases); the applications of mass spectrometric methods to the understanding of complex biological systems in human health and disease; early detection and monitoring of lung disease (optical coherence tomography, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy). The lung research programme incorporates a multidisciplinary approach of cell pathology, molecular biology and bioengineering.
Applicants require an Honours degree with a 1st or 2.1 classification, or the equivalent if they have been educated outside the UK.
