Data for ‘On-chip density-based sorting of supercooled droplets and frozen droplets in continuous flow’

Grace Porter, Sebastien Sikora, Jung-uk Shim, Benjamin Murray & Mark Tarn
The freezing of supercooled water to ice and the materials which catalyse this process are of fundamental interest to a wide range of fields. At present, our ability to control, predict or monitor ice formation processes is poor. The isolation and characterisation of frozen droplets from supercooled liquid droplets would provide a means of improving our understanding and control of these processes. Here, we have developed a microfluidic platform for the continuous flow separation of...

This note is based on research detailed in Rosato-Scott, C., Evans, B.E., House, S., Ferron, S., Barrington, D.J. CHILD-SAN: a new disability-inclusive framework for emergency sanitation for children aged five to 11, based on a systematic review of existing guidance

Veterans and the Media: A pilot survey report on how UK veterans perceive media representations about military and post-military experiences

Jenna Pitchford-Hyde & Katy Parry
This report introduces the findings of our pilot survey on veterans’ perceptions on media representations of military and post-military experiences. The mainstream media is thought to play a key role in shaping public attitudes, which in turn affects how policy makers, charities and military advocacy groups work with the media. Our objective is to work with veterans to find out what they think the main issues are in contemporary media representations. The findings of the...

Aflatoxins and the First 1000 Days of Life

Yun Yun Gong
Aflatoxins are harmful substances produced by certain types of fungi that exist naturally in the environment. The fungi grow and produce aflatoxins on staple foods such as maize and peanuts, particularly in hot and humid conditions. Children are the most vulnerable group of the population when exposed to aflatoxins within 1000 days of life because they have not developed systems for efficient detoxification. Children can be exposed to aflatoxins through breast feeding, and the introduction...

Thomas Padgett
The fishPy tool is a three-dimensional, spatially-continuous, individual-based model of fish responses to hydraulic stimuli during upstream migration through ecohydraulic environments.

Restricting Retail Food Promotions: implementation challenges could limit policy success

Victoria Jenneson, Darren Greenwood, Graham Clarke, Neil Hancock, Janet Cade & Michelle Morris
New plans to restrict point-of-sale promotions of less healthy foods and drinks in England, aim to encourage healthier choices. With responsibility for implementation likely falling to food retailers, it is important to understand feasibility challenges, to ensure policy success. Researchers found the data available to retailers to be insufficient to apply the rules set out by the policy proposal. This would see some products incorrectly promoted, and vice versa. We recommend a review of the...

Urban Anchal household survey

Helen Elsey & Joseph Hicks
Urban Anchal study baseline and six-month follow-up household surveys. Baseline household survey conducted between July and August 2017 in a ward within south Dhaka, Bangladesh, and aimed to assess the demand for centre-based child-care and current child-care practices. Six-month follow-up survey of the same households conducted between January and February 2018, and aimed to identify the proportion of baseline survey respondents who were traceable six-months after the baseline survey (to inform the design of a...

Sphingomyelinase Disables Inactivation in Endogenous PIEZO1 Channels

Jian Shi, Adam Hyman, Dario De Vecchis, Jiehan Chong, Laeticia Lichtenstein, Simon Futers, Myriam Rouahi, Anne Negre-Salvayre, Nathalie Augé, Antreas Kalli & David Beech
Endogenous PIEZO1 channels of native endothelium lack the hallmark inactivation often seen when these channels are overexpressed in cell lines. Because prior work showed that the force of shear stress activates sphingomyelinase in endothelium, we considered if sphingomyelinase is relevant to endogenous PIEZO1. Patch clamping was used to quantify PIEZO1-mediated signals in freshly isolated murine endothelium exposed to the mechanical forces caused by shear stress and membrane stretch. Neutral sphingomyelinase inhibitors and genetic disruption of...

FailSpace project

Leila Jancovich, David Stevenson & Lucy Wright
This research explores how cultural policy can better recognise, acknowledge and learn from failure. It posits that failures are largely overlooked in the dominant narratives about cultural participation policies and projects and argues that this absence reduces the capacity for learning and change. By moving beyond the tendency to make the ‘case for culture’ which is prevalent both in academic and policy documents, this research provides space for alternative voices to be heard. In doing...

Developing a Raman spectroscopy-based tool to stratify patient response to pre-operative radiotherapy in rectal cancer - dataset

Chloe Kirkby, Julia Gala de Pablo, Emma Tinkler-Hundal, Henry Wood, Stephen Evans & Nicholas West
Rectal cancer patients frequently receive pre-operative radiotherapy (RT), prior to surgical resection. However, colorectal cancer is heterogeneous and the degree of tumour response to pre operative RT is highly variable. There are currently no clinically approved methods of predicting response to RT, and a significant proportion of patients will show no clinical benefit, despite enduring the side-effects. This dataset contains the raw and pre-processed Raman spectra taken from the biopsy specimens of 20 rectal cancer...

The path to a doughnut shaped recovery

Daniel O'Neill & Beth Stratford
The “Doughnut” of social and planetary boundaries is a framework for guiding and evaluating policy, where the goal is to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet. This policy brief considers what it would take to use the “Doughnut” instead of GDP growth to guide our Covid-19 recovery.

Dataset associated with \"Friction between soft contacts at nanoscale on uncoated and protein-coated surfaces\"

Evangelos Liamas, Simon Connell, Morfo Zembyla, Rammile Ettelaie & Anwesha Sarkar
The understanding of friction on soft sliding biological surfaces at the nanoscale is poorly understood as hard interfaces are frequently used as model systems. Herein, we studied the influence of elastic modulus on the frictional properties of model surfaces at the nanoscale for the first time. We prepared model silicone-based elastomer surfaces with tuneable modulus ranging from hundreds of kPa to a few MPa, similar to those found in real biological surfaces, and employed atomic...

Marietjie J Ungerer, David Santos-Carballal, Abdelaziz Cadi-Essadek, Cornelia G C E Van Sittert & Nora H De Leeuw
>Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were uasd with long-range dispersion corrections to study the interaction of SO2 with Pt (001), (011), and (111) surfaces. Platinum is a noble metal that is widely used for the electro-catalytic production of H2, which surface reactivity towards SO2 is not yet fully understood. The work involved studying the surface energies of the mayor Pt surfaces with 4 layers, adsorption energy for SO2 on these surfaces, the thermodynamic effect of...

Philippa Shepley
This application note describes the growth Pt thin films in the Royce Deposition System. X-ray reflectivity and diffraction shows that these sputtered Pt thin films have low surface roughness and are (111) textured. These properties are desirable for the growth of Pt in magnetic multilayers and as seed layers for other materials.

Becoming well-read or reading well?: Academic Reading Circles as an innovative and inclusive practice

Milena Marinkova & Alison Leslie
Academic Reading Circles are an innovative strategy for supporting students’ academic reading practices. Based on reading circles used in more general contexts to develop students’ engagement with reading extensively, Academic Reading Circles have been adapted to the academic context to help students engage with more complex texts in their discipline. This paper will consider how Academic Reading Circles can play a strategic role in students becoming well read or in their learning process of reading...
