The gods of small things

Abstract:
A £6 MILLION new research centre in Cambridge will develop the next generation of Charles Darwins and Stephen Hawkings.

Cambridge University has won funding to create a new facility to encourage more than 50 of its brightest young scientists to develop life-changing technology.

Postgraduate students at the new Doctoral Training Centre in NanoScience will carry out pioneering research on work on a minute molecular scale to create new technologies in fields such as climate change, energy and high-tech crime.

Prof Jeremy Baumberg, who will lead the new centre, said: "This is a wonderful investment in young researchers, complementing the strong nano-fabrication infrastructure and world-class interdisciplinary groups across the University of Cambridge."

The cash has been provided by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the UK funding body for science and engineering.

Dozens of postgraduate students will take four-year training programmes at the new centre over the next five years.

Prof Peter Littlewood, head of the university's physics department, said: "Cambridge University has a strong track record in taking innovations in nanomaterials and converting them into commercial endeavours.
