Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies

Enabling Healthcare Technologies: Synthesis, Biomaterials and Sensing

Healthcare TechnologiesDate: Wednesday 28 January 2015

Time: 10:30 - 18:20

Location: University of Bath, East Building 1.1 

Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) is pleased to announce this one day student-led symposium which focusses on the research based on healthcare technologies at the Centre.

Refreshments will be provided (lunch + teas/coffees).

There will also be a poster session from 18:20 with drinks and refreshments. Poster presentations are welcomed – please indicate in the registration form if you would like to bring a poster. A poster prize will be awarded at the end of the symposium.


External talks will be given from three leading scientists within healthcare technologies:

Dr Peter Dunn is the Global Head of Green Chemistry at Pfizer, who was responsible for the development and commercialisation of four drugs including Viagra (sildenafil).

Professor Christoph Wälti is a Professor in Bionanotechnology from the University of Leeds, focusing on self-assembly applications and the interface between biology and semiconductors.

Dr Sameer Rahatekar is a Lecturer in Composites and Nanocomposites from the University of Bristol, involved with the Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science.

In addition the symposium aims to showcase the latest developments in work from academics and students both in the CSCT and relevant departments within the University. There will be three sessions covering research into biomaterial engineering, sensing and diagnostics, and the synthesis of biologically interesting molecules.


To register, please fill in the online form. Now closed.
