Funding grant for engineering project

Dr Jiling Feng collaborated with Loughborough University (LU) and University of Birmingham (UoB) and was awarded the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funding grant.

The project “Smart Peripheral Stents for the Lower Extremity – Design, Manufacturing and Evaluation” aims to develop smart stents for treatment of complex periphery artery stenosis in the lower limbs, where customised design of novel medical devices should significantly improve patency times and reduce complications in interventional therapy.

Three research groups from the LU, UoB and Manchester Met have come together to tackle the technical challenges and collaboratively deliver this project.
