在生物检测技术研究中心是一个多学科研究中心开发的接口，两个主要施放研究团体之间的大学。 Comprising the Particle Instrumentation & Diagnostics (PID) group，内 School of Physics, Astronomy & Mathematics (PAM)和 Microfluidic & Microengineering 研究 Group (MMRG).
The Research Centre brings together expertise in microfluidics, sample processing & handling, airborne collection & detection technologies (particle, biological and chemical), engineering design and integrated system development. As an exemplar of successful multi-disciplinary Research and Development, the Centre brings together expertise across Schools with research outputs across several of the University’s 研究 主题 leveraged by existing expertise spanning 餐饮, Information & Security, Health & Wellbeing and 空间.
At the basis of the Centre's activities lies the development of novel techniques and instruments that address new and emerging threats in biosecurity. Working collaboratively with national and international research organisations, the Centre conducts a spectrum of research from curiosity driven to applied R&D, the latter typically aiming to raise the Technology Readiness Level of biodetection research concepts and prototypes from TRL1/2/3 to TRL5/6.
Current biodetection R&D projects have a focus on the development of integrated systems incorporating autonomous airborne pathogen collect/detect systems, sample processing and handling, real-time analysis using DNA amplification and remote reporting, with a particular emphasis on early detection of biowarfare agents for the protection of military and civilian populations.
Dr 丹尼尔·麦克罗斯基 is Associate Dean (Enterprise), Director of the 中心在生物检测技术的研究 and Head of the Microfluidics & Microengineering 研究 Group in the School of 工程 & Technology, University of Hertfordshire.
He leads on research, commercial and enterprise activities taking an active role in applied research, client engagement, Knowledge Transfer and 商业 Development. Daniel has a track record in successful, multidisciplinary research and contract collaborations between Industry, Academics and Research staff across the Engineering & Technology spectrum. He graduated with a BEng Aerospace 工程 in 2003 from the University of Hertfordshire before gaining his PhD from Coventry University in 2009. He joined the Microfluidics & Microengineering 研究 Group in 2009 with his subsequent work focussing on the rapid development of turn-key, fluid dynamics based, integrated biodetection systems.
The Centre conducts a spectrum of research from curiosity driven to applied R&D, the latter typically aiming to raise the Technology Readiness Level of biodetection research concepts and prototypes from TRL1/2/3 to TRL5/6. Clients include the UK MoD and the Defence Science & Technology Laboratory (Porton Down), with collaborators on Industry and 研究 Council funded projects including Optisense Ltd., Fera Science Ltd and Bayer CropScience.
