The Centre for Healthcare Technologies Director; Professor Steve Morgan has been awarded a prestigious Royal Society Industry Fellowship to work with Footfalls and Heartbeats (UK) over the next four years.
The Optics and Photonics Group at the University of Nottingham and Footfalls and Heartbeats have enjoyed a close collaboration through their innovations in optical fibre sensing in healthcare. This Fellowship will support turning these into commercial products.
I am very excited about working with the Footfalls team to develop the next generation of smart textiles and am very grateful to the Royal Society for giving me this opportunity.
The awards were announced at the annual Labs to Riches event at the Royal Society on 20th March 2018.
