Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

We present a white space communications test bed running in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, and discuss its feasibility for smart grid communications. The network aims to serve communities that have great potential for distributed generation of electricity, by means of wind, water, and tidal power. However, smart grid applications such as remote meter reading and load balancing are impaired by the scarcity or lack of communications infrastructure in remote rural areas such as the Scottish Highlands and Islands. We argue that the proposed system is based on a network of energy self-sufficient radio relay nodes that make it a robust and independent medium to support smart grid communications in rural settings.
