Our clinical-academic collaborative partnership is the foundation of our success. From mature technologies already on the market and improving patient care, to a vibrant spinout company portfolio to our emerging technologies, we have an excellent track record of supporting the pathway to clinical adoption.
A small selection of our technologies are presented here and others can be found in the capabilities pages or use the search function to find out what we're doing in different clinical areas.
Our Magnetoencephalography (MEG) scanner is revolutionising brain imaging with new wearable sensors and is being brought to market by Cerca Magnetics Ltd
Our facial and voice recognition technology can assist with the diagnosis and monitoring of mental health conditions, being commercialised by BlueSkye AI Ltd
Our endotracheal tube aims to minimize tracheal injury during intubation and reduce the incidence of ventilator-assisted pneumonia.
We are developing 3D-printed personalised medicines capable of delivering multiple medications at the correct dose and time.
Technologies in clinical use
General practitioners are better equipped to reduce the human and societal cost of prescription errors following a national roll-out of the PINCER tool
The SurePulse optical sensor will enhance resuscitation of babies in neonatal intensive care, and supporting clinical staff to make confident time critical decisions
Trauma patients rushed to A&E with serious eye injuries can now benefit from NuVision's ground-breaking sight-saving wound dressing
Spin-out company, Monica Healthcare, developed a technology for monitoring expectant mothers, which has been used by over 100,000 patients worldwide. Monica was bought by GE Healthcare in 2017.

A to Z of Case Studies
- In the BioBones project, a novel bone graft material; a composite material with similar mechanical properties to bone, but includes a fully resorbable biodegradable glass fibre to allow new bone to grow was developed by a team of materials scientists, biomedical scientists and a consultant maxillofacial surgeon at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham.
- Our research is developing targeted therapy, consisting of porous microspheres, which could offer a quick, easy and minimally-invasive treatment that is injected into areas considered to be at high-risk of fracture to promote bone regeneration.
