The Interdisciplinary Research Institute for Health, Technology and Solutions has a specific focus on developing and improving diagnostics and treatments of patients.
As Theme Lead, Professor Owen Guy is a leading researcher in the field of health technology at Swansea University. He has led several research projects in this field, including:
Development of nanosensors for disease diagnosis and monitoring. Research also focuses on the development of nanotechnology-based solutions for healthcare. He has led research projects that aim to develop nanosensors that can detect diseases at an early stage, allowing for prompt treatment and better patient outcomes.
Research projects have also aimed to develop nanomaterials that can be used for drug delivery. These nanomaterials can be designed to target specific cells or tissues, allowing for more effective drug delivery and reduced side effects.
Research is also exploring development of wearable devices for monitoring health. These devices can track vital signs such as glucose, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels, allowing for early detection of health problems.
Overall, the research in theme of health technology is focused on developing innovative solutions that can improve patient outcomes and transform healthcare.
