Assessment of Human Skin Emissivity using Passive Millimetre-Wave Sensing

Amani Yousef Owda and Dr. Neil Salmon


Over the past few decades technology in the millimetre wave band has shown a steady and consistent development and increased usage, with a wide variety of devices and system architectures (imaging, non-imaging, radiometers and radars) sensors becoming available. As an imaging sensor, these systems can deliver spatial resolutions of less than the wavelength, which in the millimetre wave band is down to about 1.0 mm. This property enables highly localised measurements to be made of skin which cann...

Elucidating the role of JAK2 in haematological malignancies using proteomics

Amy Grayson Robert Graham Nina Dempsey-Hibbert John Burthem Mark Slevin Carol Ainley Ciaren Graham


Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a heterogeneous group of rare bone marrow disorders
which lead to the increased proliferation of haematopoietic stem cells and subsequent increased
myeloid cell count. Classic MPNs include the Philadelphia chromosome-positive disease, chronic
myeloid leukaemia (CML), while polycythaemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and
myelofibrosis (MF) belong to the Philadelphia-chromosome negative diseases. Dysregulation of the

Investigating Mechanisms Underlying Trans-generational Inheritance of Depression and Cognition in Offspring

Reema ALYamani Dr Ben Nephew Dr Chris Murgatroyd


Social stressors such as impaired maternal care and family conflict are robust challenges, which can have long-term physiological and behavioural effects on the offspring.

The aim of this study is to explore mechanisms underlying the inheritance of stress including: 1, epigenetic, neuroendocrine and immune alterations; 2, factors in breast milk; 3, genetic susceptibilities.

A rat model of transgenerational maternal chronic social stress (CSS) has been studied for ...

Modelling and Analysis of Li-Fi for Smart Factories

Yousef Almadani Dr Muhammad Ijaz Dr Bamidele Adebisi Dr Sujan Rajbhandari


Light fidelity (Li-Fi) is an emerging field that uses light emitting diodes (LEDs) for simultaneous indoor lighting and ubiquitous high bandwidth wireless communications. Some of the applications of Li-Fi are to provide high data rate internet to homes, offices, campuses, hospitals, and any indoor wireless communication setting. One of those promising areas is industrial wireless communications (Industry 4.0).

Industry 4.0 is a new developing trend of high-speed data exchange requ...
