A project from Prof Lisa Hall’s group involving the research and development of glucose testing strips for those suffering with diabetes was recently showcased at the House of Commons.

Read more about the way Chemical engineering revolutionises the way diabetics monitor their blood glucose.

The research project was one of ten selected by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) to appear at the Chemical Engineering Matters for a Modern World event held recently.

The event was hosted by the Baroness Brown of Cambridge and IChemE’s UK Research Committee. It welcomed over 100 specially invited guests from the academic and engineering community, as well as policy-makers, opinion-formers and Members of Parliament. It was held on Thursday 15 December 2016, in the Terrace Pavilion, House of Commons, in London, UK.

Prof Lisa Hall invited postgraduate students Cassi Henderson and Andrew Stretton to join her at the event. Both are working on industry focused projects. Andrew is working with AlphaSense on gas sensing and Cassi is working on diagnostics for low-resource settings.
