Researchers develop an energy efficient technique for densification of biocompatible glass powder.
Researchers from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering have applied a new low temperature (<250°C) processing technique to bioactive glasses which could be used to repair human tissues in a safe, sustainable way.
New processing method could help tackle UK’s huge plutonium stockpile problem
A safe, cost effective way of immobilising five tons of contaminated plutonium residues, part of the UK’s 140 ton plutonium inventory has been demonstrated by engineers from the University of Sheffield.
Lab-grown bone could change the way we test new medical treatments
A new technology that could be used to test new treatments for human organs and bone tissue - all whilst reducing the need for animal research - has been developed by engineers at the University of Sheffield.
Materials discovery to be transformed by new cutting-edge research centre
A new research centre that will transform how we discover new materials for industry and train the next generation of materials scientists has reached a key milestone in its construction at the University of Sheffield.
