Research

Examples of recent ISRU research:

ISRU were partners in the Network of Excellence for Innovative Production Machines and Systems (I*PROMS), funded under the EU Sixth Framework Programme for a duration of five years (www.iproms.org). I*PROMS addresses innovative manufacturing research in an integrated manner in order to reshape this research area and overcome its current fragmentation.

ImportNET involved the study of different worldwide cultures; its main aim is to improve working relationships between countries. This 3 year FP7 project’s main output is a software plug-in which will educate and advise the user as regards their current multi-cultural collaborations.

Continual work with the Department of Academic Haematology (Newcastle Medical School) involves analysing and modelling data from patients who have undergone haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Innovative modelling techniques have allowed risk scores to be assigned pre-transplant which may, in the future, go some way to modifying transplant regimes.

“ISRU has been carrying out innovative statistical modelling on our transplant patient and donor cohorts who undergo haematopoietic stem cell transplantation for their malignancies (e.g. leukaemia, lymphoma). Their work has enabled us to develop a scoring system for the patients which in the future may allow their transplant protocols to be modified on an individual basis depending on their genetic make-up. This work won a prestigious prize at the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation in 2007.”
