Sci-Phy-4-Health will train over 50 students from different scientific backgrounds together in an innovative new programme that combines chemistry, physics, engineering and computer science to address three key UK healthcare challenges: Trauma and Cardiovascular disease -the major killers of under 40s and over 65s - and Ageing - a UK Healthcare Grand Challenge.

The Centre will underpin UK competitiveness in biomedical technologies: an area of rapid growth with a global market of more than $1 trillion. 18 industrial companies, a leading NHS acute hospital, and national research institutes are embedded in the programme to ensure developments can impact immediately on patients.
