SciBar - Parasites: Masters of Disguise
The parasites that cause human disease try to stay undercover, finding safe homes within the bodies of their hosts. Within these homes they can eat, drink and make merry, using the resources of the host to produce another generation of tiny parasites. But this can be very bad news for the host, causing diseases such as malaria. So it is...
Hip Hip Hooray
What’s the link between sports, bone development in the young, and arthritis? In this animation we explore research that is trying to figure out why very sporty people tend to develop a condition of the hip, and what can be done about it.
My main area of interest lies in the development of medical devices, and their translation from research concept to the clinic, where they have the potential to help improve patient outcomes. I have a research background in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine - which I studied at Sheffield University - and previous industry experience...
Information on eye-tracking in medicine
Where you’re looking and how wide the pupil is can be crucial factors in the analysis of behavioural and brain imaging data. Muscles that control eye movement produce relatively large electric currents and magnetic fields, making ...
Podcast on hearing loss, music, hearing aids and cochlear implants
Auditory Neuroscience is an online blog dealing with all aspects of how sound interacts with our brains - how do we perceive sounds, how do they affect our brains, how can human hearing change and how is it affected by acoustics? The research will help us understand the...

Title: Involving Patients in Medical Research
Why do diets fail?
It's a new year (and a new decade!) and many of us will be looking to turn over a new leaf when it comes to diet and lifestyle. But - as anyone who's tried one will know - diets are VERY difficult to stick to. In this episode of the Big Questions podcast, we ask Professor Heidi de Wet from the University of Oxford's Department of Physiology,...
