The key to successful growth of a Nanomedicine hub is forging industry and research partnerships. Build on the university’s strengths in engineering and physical sciences by searching for researchers and clinicians eager to cross-disciplinary boundaries.

The culture of researchers is very important to feel supported not only in a research group but in the School and in the wider University. Knowing you have support from both the Schools and Universities administration is empowering both personally and academically.
