Antennas and Electromagnetics Group, Queen Mary University of London
Established in 1968 in London, United Kingdom, the Antennas and Electromagnetics Research Group has an active grant portfolio of over £4,000,000, a strong team of academics and researchers, and comprehensive experimental facilities which have recently benefited from £1,000,000 in infrastructure investment. The group, led by Professor Clive Parini, has strong links with industry and its research focuses on various areas related to antenna engineering, bio-electromagnetics and novel materials. Our partnership focuses on the development of microwave imaging systems using metamaterial technology which can be used for cancer screening.
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) was formed in 1957 in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, and is the leading national scientific laboratory in the United Kingdom. It is operated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council and supports the work of over 10,000 scientists and engineers. RAL carries world-class research projects in the areas of materials, structures, space science, light sources and particle physics. MediWiSe has partnered with the Particle Physics Department and Dr Giulio Villani to develop novel implantable antenna systems that are utilised in miniaturised radiation dosimeter devices.
National and Technical University of Athens
The National and Technical University of Athens, Greece, was founded in 1836 and is the oldest and most prestigious engineering university in Greece. Hosting over 15,000 students, researchers and academics, MediWiSe has partnered with the Fibre Optics and Microwave Laboratory led by Professor Nikolaos Uzunoglu. The group has over 25 years of experience in designing microwave components, antennas, and metamaterials, with strong focus in biomedical applications. The collaboration focuses on the development of miniaturised radio-frequency systems for healthcare applications.
Morestep Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd.
was founded in 1998 and is the leading hyperthermia equipment producer in China. Located in the Hi-Tech Zone of Changchun City, Jilin Province, Morestep develops, designs and sells over 10 types of products to more than 300 hospitals in 23 provinces, including the NRL Endogenic RF Hyperthermia Systems, the RHL2000 serial Chemo-hyperthermia Perfusion Systems, and the RL Capacitive Field Hyperthermia Systems. MediWiSe collaborates with Morestep towards the development of novel radio-frequency imaging and diagnostic devices, as well as expanding the two companies' reach to the Chinese and European markets, respectively.
School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, King's College London
