BU submitted to the call for proposals for HEIF 6 . These results are due to be announced by March 2017.HEIF in the media spotlight
HEIF projects continue to be featured in the media including the latest edition of the Bournemouth Research Chronicle (P22/23).
We are currently working with previous RKEO work placement Oliver Cooke (Ollie) as part of his final year project. Ollie is an undergraduate media production student who is developing a number of digital channels including social media, web and video content to showcase the HEIF projects and the HEIF journey at BU. This will form part of his final year assessment. He was part of the Research & Knowledge Exchange Team last year as he was successful in securing a 12 month placement with the department.

First of this month 14:Live saw BU students and staff learning more about osteoarthritis and what is ORI currently working on to make a real difference for people suffering from this common form of joint disease. As well as having a chance to hear about the life changing research and work from ORI, attendees were able to test out the Laser Speckle Contrast Imager (LSCI) which is used to visualise blood flow and measure micro circulation just below the skin’s surface. The presentation also included videos of ORI’s specialist equipment and lab which is going to be open for the public during Festival of Learning 2017.
Next 14:Live with FoodSMART is on 28 February.
