Photoelectrochemical imaging with high spatiotemporal resolution: publication in Biosensors and Bioelectronics1 March 2021
Electrochemical or photoelectrochemical imaging of living cells has great potential for label-free, functional monitoring of cell responses, but is either relatively slow or suffers from poor resolution. Detailed electrochemical imaging has been limited to single-cell investigations, making it time-consuming to produce biologically relevant data. Our publication “Photoelectrochemical imaging system with … [more]
Congratulations to Bo Zhou who passed his PhD viva yesterday. Bo's thesis title is "Photoelectrochemical imaging of live cells using semiconductor substrates". He was supervised by Steffi Krause and Karin Hing. He presented his work at the International Symposium on Bioelectrochemistry and Bioenergetics in 2019, published two full papers and submitted … [more]
The new KTPs, which represent funding of over £500,000, will support engineering projects aimed at developing new biomaterials for bone healthcare treatments, and novel woven colour-changing fabrics for clothing. Improving bone healthcare treatments Working with Lucideon, who are a leading organisation in materials development and commercialisation, Queen Mary will develop new … [more]
SEMS has secured two new Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTPs) grants this month. This success represents a total of about £500K in grant funding and a doubling of SEMS portfolio to a total of 4 live KTP projects. This is all of the live KTP projects running at QMUL currently. The first … [more]
The pioneering work of a Queen Mary researcher has been celebrated with a stamp as part of a new series launched by Royal Mail. The six stamp set, launched today, marks innovations in British engineering from the last 50 years including the development of a synthetic bone graft by Dr Karin … [more]
First report of cell surface charge mapping with a photoelectrochemical imaging system appears in Analytical Chemistry15 April 2019
Fan's and Bo's paper on the photoelectrochemical imaging of cell surface charges has been been accepted by Analytical Chemistry. Photoanodic currents at indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass immersed in an electrolyte solution were shown to be sensitive to surface charge, pH and impedance. Our laser scanning setup allows photoelectrochemical … [more]
Dr Feng Yang has successfully completed her corrections having defended her PhD thesis entitled "The Synergistic effect of Bone Graft Substitute Architecture and Mechanical Environment on hMSCs Responses in vitro". Her research on the development of 3D bioreactors to facilitate in vitro investigation of bone graft substitute bioactivity demonstrated the … [more]
Scientists led by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have developed a new type of synthetic bone graft that boosts the body’s own ability to regenerate bone tissue and could produce better outcomes for patients. The research, which is published in the Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine … [more]
