Shortlisted nominee of the 2014 WISE Research Award
13 November 2014
Professor Aline F. Miller, Professor of Biomolecular Engineering, University of Manchester
Aline’s research is focused on high quality science and its translation for human health. A key aim is to understand the underlying physics of self-assembling systems and apply such knowledge to design innovative materials for use within medical therapy, tissue regeneration and diagnostic fields.
One significant achievement of Aline’s team is the development of a patented platform technology for the design of biomaterials which is now being commercialised through her spin-out company. Subject to clinical trials, this technology could treat 475,000 patients worldwide and reduce public health costs of £4.7 billion. “She is firmly on track to translate her research into the clinic where it will make a transformative difference to people’s lives” says Professor Mike Sutcliffe, Head of the Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science School.
