Beckett honours implant researchers

The work of a multi-disciplinary research group based within the School of Mechanical Engineering has been recognised by the award of a President’s Partnership Prize.

Second prize in the engineering section went to the University’s Biomedical Engineering Group, which investigates the engineering and biological aspects of medical implants. The group is currently researching synthetic heart valves and artificial hip joints.

Presenting the prize of £15,000, Margaret Beckett, President of the Board of Trade, said links with industry enhanced universities’ research and teaching dynamism.
