  • Rehma Chandaria (Medicine) is researching regenerative medicine. She is trying to grow stem cells in artificial structures to create tissue grafts that might be able to help sufferers of Crohn’s Disease or Colitis.
  • Stuart Bowe (Physics/Nanoscience) is in his second year of a PhD in physics. He is looking at how we can change the magnetic properties of materials so that they can be used in ultra-fast computers. He spend most of his time squeezing something called Galfenol.
  • Lisa Common (Management) is a midwife and full-time PhD student. Her research is exploring how change is successfully introduced to maternity services that enables more women to safely give birth to their children at home.
