Thinking small - detailed

One of the first programmes funded under the EPSRC's new Masters training scheme is the joint University of Leeds / University of Sheffield Masters training package in Nanoscale Science and Technology, combining physical and biological sciences with advanced materials engineering in the "Science of the Very Small." Potential applications include "electronic noises" and "lab-on-a-chip"systems for medical diagnosis and automated drug delivery. Developed by Professor Neville Boden of SOMS - Centre for Self-Organising Molecular Systems and Dr Robert Kelsall (Electronic and Electrical Engineering), topics range from nanostructured materials to self-organising molecular and biological systems. Full and part-time MSc study is available and one-week courses and one-day workshops. Details from
