“A Permanent National Necessity...” Adult Education and Lifelong Learning for 21st Century Britain

John Holford
Report of the Centenary Commission on Adult Education (2019); chair: Dame Helen Ghosh. The Commission was set up by the Adult Education 100 campaign to mark the centenary of the Final Report (1919) of the Ministry of Reconstruction's Adult Education Committee. The Centenary Commission's purpose was to set a vision for adult education in Great Britain in the 21st century.

Resonant tunnelling into the two-dimensional subbands of InSe layers

Zakhar Kudrynskyi & Amalia Patane
Two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals (vdW) crystals have attracted considerable interest for digital electronics beyond Si-based complementary metal oxide semiconductor technologies. Despite the transformative success of Si-based devices, there are limits to their miniaturization and functionalities. Here we realize resonant tunnelling transistors (RTTs) based on a 2D InSe layer sandwiched between two multi-layered graphene (MLG) electrodes. In these RTTs the energy of the quantum-confined 2D subbands of InSe can be tuned by the thickness of...

Vaccine NMA data & syntax

Kavita Vedhara
Psychological and behavioural factors influence the effectiveness of vaccines. This has led to interest in the potential for non-pharmacological treatments, which modify these factors, to enhance vaccine effectiveness. We conducted a systematic review and network meta-analysis (NMA) to examine the effects of non-pharmacological adjuvants on vaccine effectiveness, as measured by antibody responses to vaccination. Electronic databases (EMBASE, Medline, PsychINFO, CINAHL) were searched from inception to 6th February 2018. This yielded 100 eligible papers, reporting 106...

Immune Modulation by Design: Using Topography to Control Human Monocyte Attachment and Macrophage Differentiation

Morgan Alexander
Material topography is known to influence macrophage attachment and phenotype, providing opportunities for the rational design of ‘immune-instructive’ topographies to modulate macrophage function and thus foreign body responses to biomaterials. However, no generalisable understanding of the inter-relationship between topography and cell response exists. We therefore utilise a high throughput screening approach to investigate the relationship between topography and human monocyte-derived macrophage attachment and phenotype, using a diverse library of 2176 micropatterns generated by an algorithm....

The future of factory cleaning: responsible cleaning data collection and use framework

Martin Porcheron, Nicholas Watson, Joel E. Fischer & Stuart Reeves
This report introduces the future technologies that are expected to fundamentally reshape the work of cleaning food and drink factories, focusing on the possibilities for data collection and use that these technologies enable. Data serves as the core commodity that will help deliver the changes across the industry, allowing for greater fidelity and traceability across the supply chain. However, data, especially of a commercially sensitive or even personal nature, must be handled responsibly to avoid...

Fungal biofilm formation on potential anti-attachment materials

Cindy Vallieres, Morgan R. Alexander & Simon V. Avery
(Meth)acrylate polymers showing the lowest fungal attachment (from a preceding microarray-spot screen) were assayed by scale-up to coat the 6.4-mm diameter wells of 96-well plates. Polymers showing surface cracking were excluded from the analysis. Related to Vallieres et al (2020) Science Advances, Fig 2A,B.

Discovery of a novel polymer for human pluripotent stem cell expansion and multilineage differentiation - Supporting data 2

James Smith
A scalable and cost-effective synthetic polymer substrate that supports robust expansion and subsequent multilineage differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) with defined commercial media is presented. Data presented here shows cell adhesion to microarrays, scaled up surfaces, pluripotent marker expression and multilineage differentiation markers. Please note that this data set is in two parts, the first part of which can be found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.17639/nott.12

Processing and properties of PLA-HA nanocomposites: the effect of particle morphology and dispersants

Magdalena M. Tomczynska, Davide De Focatiis, Michael Ward, Gabriel Y. H. Choong, Alessia Canciani, Kirsty Walton, David M. Grant, Derek J. Irvine & Andrew J. Parsons
The load bearing capacity of biodegradable polymeric medical devices remains limited; an improvement in mechanical properties is desirable to widen the range of applications. Incorporation of nanoparticles is explored to increase the mechanical properties of the base matrix whilst maintaining desirable polymeric processing routes. Various nanomaterials have been investigated for polylactic acid (PLA) reinforcement for orthopaedic applications; hydroxyapatite (HA), the main inorganic constituent of bone, is one of the most promising bioresorbable nanofillers. However, uncoated...

Strain-engineered graphene grown on hexagonal boron nitride by molecular beam epitaxy

Peter Beton, Alex Summerfield & Andrew Davies
Graphene grown by high temperature molecular beam epitaxy on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) forms continuous domains with dimensions of order 20 μm, and exhibits moiré patterns with large periodicities, up to ~30 nm, indicating that the layers are highly strained. Topological defects in the moiré patterns are observed and attributed to the relaxation of graphene islands which nucleate at different sites and subsequently coalesce. In addition, cracks are formed leading to strain relaxation, highly anisotropic...

Age-related changes to human stratum corneum lipids detected using ToF-SIMS following in vivo sampling

Nichola Starr, Daniel Johnson & David Scurr
This work demonstrates the ability to detect changes in both quantity and spatial distribution of human stratum corneum (SC) lipids from samples collected in vivo. The SC functions as the predominant barrier to the body, protecting against the penetration of xenobiotic substances. Changes to the SC lipid composition have been associated with barrier impairment and consequent skin disorders and it is therefore important to monitor and quantify changes to this structure. This work demonstrates the...

Organisation and ordering of 1D porphyrin polymers synthesised by on-surface Glaser coupling

Alex Saywell
One-dimensional polymer chains consisting of π-conjugated porphyrin units are formed via Glaser coupling on a Ag(111) surface. Scanning probe microscopy reveals the covalent structure of the products and their ordering. The conformational flexibility within the chains is investigated via a comparison of room temperature and cryogenic measurements.

Resonant Zener tunnelling via zero-dimensional states in a narrow gap diode

Amalia Patane & Davide Maria Di Paola
The data contains measured current-voltage characteristics and simulated energy band profiles describing Zener tunnelling via zero-dimensional states in a narrow gap diode. In our devices, a narrow quantum well of the mid-infrared (MIR) alloy In(AsN) is placed in the intrinsic (i) layer of a p-i-n diode. The incorporation of nitrogen in the quantum well creates states that are localized on nanometer lengthscales. These levels provide intermediate states that act as “stepping stones” for electrons tunnelling...
