Breakthrough in human cell transformation could revolutionise regenerative medicine 19-Jan-2016
A breakthrough in the transformation of human cells by an international team led by researchers in Computer Science could open the door to a new range of treatments for a variety of medical conditions. Their paper in Nature Genetics, demonstrates a system that predicts how to create any human cell type from another cell type directly, without the need for experimental trial and error.
EPSRC Grant on Novel Visuo-Control Architectures for Agile Robot Exploration 03-Nov-2015
A new 4-year project involving Bristol and Manchester Universities sets to explore vision and
