An Imperial alumnus returned to the College to view the science his generosity is supporting
A year after donating £1million to fund scholarships, an Imperial alumnus returned to the College to view the science his generosity is supporting.
Mr Wilfred Corrigan donated money, via the Corrigan-Walla Foundation, to the Institute of Biomedical Engineering to provide funds for post graduate students; and help for post doctorates who are conducting advanced research in nanotechnology.
Dr Konstantin Nikolic New Window was one of the first to receive support from the fund. He works in nanoscale science and his research draws inspiration from the biological world. In particular, he is interested in living cells and how they interact in biological systems.
"Living cells are like small analogue computers that receive information from their surroundings. They process information and use it to communicate between themselves; performing tasks with very limited resources, but still achieving very complex computations," he said.
