Program description

Nanoscale Science and Technology research students in nanoLAB cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. This gives you the chance to thrive on interdisciplinary challenges, collaborate with industrial partners and even create your own spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.

MPhil and PhD supervision is available in:
•micro and nanoscale design, fabrication, manufacturing and manipulation
•top-down and bottom-up fabrication
•nanoscale materials and electronics
•applications of nano and microelectronics in medical science, including cell biology, neuroscience, human genetics and ageing
•chemistry of nanoscale systems
•biomolecular engineering - microfluids, bioprobes and biosensor systems, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and devices.

More information about staff specialisms can be found on the nanoLAB website.

Many research projects cross the disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. Depending on the source of funding, your project may involve collaboration with an industry partner or you may work in a team with a number of students to develop an idea to the point where, following your degree, you can create a spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.

There are opportunities for you to develop your business awareness and skills, with training in topics such as intellectual property protection. nanoLAB also hosts regular research seminars, conferences and workshops.


nanoLAB, one of the University’s research centres, brings together our cross-disciplinary research in biomedical science, nanoelectronics, nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS), chemistry and materials.

Our facilities include some of the best-equipped micro/nano device fabrication facilities in the UK, including:
•clean rooms for fabrication of bio-nano devices, electrical and material characterisation
•specialist equipment that can operate with nanometre scale resolution
•the national X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) service, NEXUS.
