Boost for particles

Plans for a new Institute for Particle Science and Engineering have got the green light thanks to funding of 3.45m. Money from the UK Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE), BNFL, AstraZeneca and other partners will be used to refurbish and equip research laboratories and manufacturing halls for staff from process, environmental and materials engineering, chemistry, food science and mechanical engineering.

The new institute will integrate particle science work across the University and will focus on the application of particle science in consumer goods, including food, household and pharmaceutical products.

Bid leader, Professor Richard Williams said: "The Institute will help us address key areas in modern particle science and to integrate the School's activities across the campus with other expertise in colloid science in food and polymers."
