School of Engineering recognises their Covid-19 heroes
During a School of Engineering staff meeting in November, 81 members of the School community were honoured for their work on the Covid-19 pandemic response.
A snapshot of Covid-19 activities by SynthSys members within the School of Engineering:
- Dr Katherine Dunn led a 30 person strong team that made nearly 12,000 face shields, donated mainly to workers in health and social care
- Dr Adam Stokes received a grant from the Chief Scientist's Office to take a team of engineers and clinicians to produce 3D scanned and 3D printed bespoke facemasks.
- Dr Leonardo Rios Solis focused on low cost automation for covid-19 diagnostics through the use of novel enzymes.
