Welsh scientists creating portable lung

Abstract:
Scientists at a Welsh university are working on a "next generation" artificial lung using futuristic nanotechnology. The "portable lung" being developed at Swansea University has the potential to save millions of lives across the world. The project is led by Swansea University's Professor Rhodri Williams and is run by the Complex Fluids and Complex Flows Portfolio Partnership which is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The partnership uses the growing expertise in nano- medicine at the University's Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre.
