Research Impact at the University of Leicester

Bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics, so what we’re trying to do is work out how we can remove disease in animals and prevent infection in humans. Atrial fibrillation is the commonest heart rhythm disturbance that we see in clinical practice every day, so in the UK we’re talking about over a million people. […]

The first theme is a space exploration. In order for a human to go on a long term mission in space, we can not use conventional […]

Automated System Detects Cracks in Nuclear Power Plants

The nuclear reactor, which is very sensitive. It’s under the water, in order to be cooling the system, and direct inspection is impossible. In order to inspect the surface, we need to have cameras under the water or a robotic arm that collects the videos. We have been working with Electric Power Research Institute to […]
