Why: Also access to facilities and material as the issue was during the period of Phase I of the Collaborative where access to Stem Cell lines were legislatively prohibited in the USA. Inclusive to this they were looking to increase the research outputs of the universities involved within Phase I, knew that putting smart people in the same room that they would identify synergies between themselves and generate outputs in Research and publications.

Why: Looking at Boston, but were looking to gain inward investment into the UK through research building on access to people, research, and facilities. The attitude of openness within Texas was the weight that tipped in Texas’s favour versus Boston.

Looking at this opportunity of being in this prestigious research collaboration is very impactful to not only Swansea but to Wales in general in regards to speeding up innovation in the medical and health sector. Wales being a small country it is easy to meet with the decision makers to be able to facilitate opportunities. Swansea has been able to increase the research funds of the Medical and Engineering schools due to this collaboration inclusive to this they have brought not only World Class Medical and Engineering Science and Experts to Wales but taken the best in Wales to Texas. Opportunities like this to create a streamlined framework of capturing the benefits while capitalising on the opportunities should not be missed. Flexibility and accessibility is key, opportunities in gaining knowledge and innovation to better the Healthcare offering in Wales.

The opportunity of bringing the NHS Clinical Trials Infrastructure to the Collaborative is a key driver for the NHS in building new and novel ways of delivering healthcare in Wales. By tying into the TX/UK Collaborative we gain access to one of the World leading cancer research centers and are able to bring to bear the value of phase II trials for research in Texas. Building throughput of new products and processes will allow the Welsh NHS to maximise on its strategic investments with Universities, especially Swansea University. Inclusive to this is the access to some of the best medical minds in the world; by bringing them together we can drive knowledge development in the NHS with our Clinical Researchers for Translational outputs.

A small fraction of the world’s research can take place in Wales - international collaborations will increase the influence and reputation of Wales in research and development. Wales can benefit from research carried out elsewhere by forming collaborations with leading researchers in other parts of the world, especially the USA

Building international collaborations provides access to the world’s best science, scientists and facilities. Prime Minister Brown’s speech, “Enlarging the Anglosphere”, delivered in the US on April 16, 2008 contained six proposals, four of which are currently fostered by the Collaborative: enhancing student and faculty exchanges, increasing cooperation on enterprise, strengthening cooperation in health research and fostering collaboration in other areas of research.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
