OUR CONSORTIUM

An Interdisciplinary Team
 

Manufacturing immortality was an EPSRC funded research collaboration between seven UK based universities. Each brought a different specialist expertise to create an interdisciplinary research team: chemists, biologists, scientists, engineers and designers all working together to explore the feasibility of developing, manufacturing and designing with self-healing materials.

We would like to take this opportunity to remember and pay tribute to Dr Rob Downs (1986-2020) who worked on the Manufacturing Immortality Project from 2018-2020 as a Research Associate: a gifted scientist and exceptional colleague, whose warmth, thoughtfulness and good humour will never be forgotten.
