Strathclyde Institute of Medical Devices Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Devices & Health Technologies

The University has already established an innovative programme of research through its EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Devices and Health Technologies (CTD). Working with colleagues from Engineering, the Life Sciences and Physical Sciences and clinical advisers from the NHS and elsewhere, the University has developed a world class medical device research and training programme for some of the best graduate students in the UK.

A key feature of CTD research projects is their interdisciplinary nature - each project is co-supervised by academic staff from different scientific disciplines. Additionally, all projects will have the involvement of clinical groups or medical industry companies. This ensures that the science explored and technology developed is rooted in an area of clinical or commercial need.

University of Strathclyde Research Groups currently participating in co-supervised projects include :

  • Drug delivery
  • Orthopaedics
  • Prosthetics
  • Cardiovascular Devices
  • BiomaterialsTissue Engineering
  • Neuroprosthetics
  • Medical Diagnostics
  • Medical Ultrasound
  • PhotonicsMedicinal Chemistry
  • Finite element modelling/fluidics
  • Signal Processing
  • Wireless telemetry
  • Applied mathematics/continuum mechanics
  • Physics/nanoscience
