Swansea University’s Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) recently hosted a day of activities to showcase its expertise and capabilities.
During the day, students from Dylan Thomas Community School took part in a series of fun scientific experiments and activities such as jumping on corn flour and making ice cream with liquid Nitrogen, before viewing the CNH poster display area.
The daytime activities were followed by an evening of business networking, when the centre hosted over 40 people from companies and industry leaders to view the facilities and the poster display area highlighting the latest research at CNH including Regenerative Medicine (Stem cells, Cartilage repair, Tissue scaffolds, Wound healing), Genotoxicology and Disease diagnosis, Rheology, Biosensors, Microneedles and Microfluidics.
Aaran Lewis won book vouchers for the best poster prize, which was voted and donated by ‘Learn About China’, on the “Investigation of Biochemical Fingerprints for Diagnosis of Lung Cancer”.
Visitors were also able to enjoy a tour of the centre and view the state-of-the-art equipment and facilities.
