Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    The UK and Scottish Governments have set ambitious targets for the roll out of electric vehicles (EVs). The predicted rapid expansion in EV ownership over the next couple of decades will see a shift in demand away from petrol and diesel fuels and towards electricity. The mass roll out of EVs is likely to require upgrades to the electricity network itself, which will carry significant costs. The Centre for Energy Policy is partnering with SP Energy Networks in a National Centre for Energy Systems Integration (CESI) project that integrates energy and economic system modelling approaches to investigate the crucial question of who ultimately pays for the costs of upgrading the power network to facilitate the intended roll out of EVs.
