Microscopes in the Fight Against Malaria

Dr Richard Bowman (Lecturer & Royal Society Research Fellow, Department of Physics)
Dr Richard Bowman works on microscopy and instrumentation, with a particular focus on designing highly automated instruments that can be produced with modest resources. His current research focus is the OpenFlexure Microscope project, a motorised digital microscope that is currently being trialled for automated malaria diagnostics in Tanzania. As well as enabling technicians to diagnose more patients each day, this technology can keep better records, improve training of technicians, and help make diagnosis and reporting of malaria more consistent.

Exploring Alternative Uses of Optical Fibres

Dr James Stone (Research Fellow, Department of Physics)
Jim holds a UK Research and Innovation fellowship designed to produce and exploit innovative research at the University of Bath. His work is in the field of optical fibres. Although we most commonly associate optical fibres with telecommunications he builds and uses optical fibres containing tiny structures along their length for use in healthcare.
