Last week the BME Division organised an “away day” to foster awareness and collaborations between the several research groups that make up the division. We went to Mar Hall, a hotel complex near Loch Lomond to the north of Glasgow, and stayed there for the day.
We had 25+ posters displayed and five pre-arranged discussion groups talked about issues and ideas for improvement within the division, put forward during the day in short five minutes talks.
A variety of topics were also presented in twenty minute talks:
- The effect of lipid mobility on cellular behaviour – Mark Bennett
- An intermittent control approach to explain adaptation in human motor control – Alberto Álvarez
- Surface acoustic wave microfluidics – Julien Reboud
- Lipid-mediated parasitic invasion of biomimetic membrane systems – David Paterson
- Testing the effects of genes on the mechanical properties of bone – Liz Tanner
- Brain computer interface for neurorehabilitation: from laboratory to patients’ homes – Aleksandra Vuckovic
- The making of small things – Nikolaj Gadegaard
- Impact and research grant proposals – Andrés Alba Pérez
- How a random walk can end up looking like a career path – Marcus Swann
