Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

Collaborator Contribution The Physics Department has been the main collaborator throughout the life of the grant and is where one of the co-applicants is based. The nature of the collaboration has been mostly scientific although resources were also shared to fund students and post-docs based in the University (STFC can't award PhD's so all students need to be based in the University). Additionally, a research project has been initiated with the School of Health Sciences of the same University.
