Ian Bruce, Professor of Nanobiotechnology and leader of the research group, said: ‘New materials and chemistry being developed at the University of Kent will significantly improve the efficiency of food testing for identity and therefore improve consumer confidence and choice.’
Professor Bruce joined the University of Kent from the University of Urbino, Italy, in 2004. Since then he has won grant funding of over 2 million euros from the European Commission.
Celebrating the new grant announcement, Professor Peter Jeffries, Head of the Department of Biosciences at Kent, said: ‘This recent grant is a significant addition to the funding of our Nanobiotechnology Research Group, one of 20 research teams within the Department of Biosciences. It typifies the exciting, multidisciplinary research that our Department is leading.’
The Nanobiotechnology Research Group conducts work in the general area of nanotechnology. It has a strong track record in both academic and commercial research and product development. Current collaborations include project work with mainstream process engineers, biochemists, molecular biologists, geneticists, microbiologists, software engineers and statisticians outside and within the University, and other UK and European universities and industries.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
