The level of current funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to the University of Southampton has topped the critical £100 million mark for the first time.
Southampton currently has a grant income of £102,670,666 in EPSRC research funding across a total of 165 individual grants. The Russell Group University stands third in the Council’s portfolio of funded organisations ahead of Oxford University, and behind Cambridge and Imperial which take first and second place respectively.
Of the top three in the EPSRC funding table, Southampton is the highest per grant earner, with an average of £622,246 per grant. It is also highest per grant earner of the 19 major research-intensive universities which make up the Russell Group.

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
