The University of Glasgow gets a £1m award from the Wolfson Foundation
The University of Glasgow is to benefit from a £1m award from the Wolfson Foundation for its work on Quantum and Nanotechnology which will be a key focus of its new Research Hub in the Western campus. The £113m Research Hub, currently under construction as part of the University’s £1bn campus development programme, will provide a cutting-edge environment where the Quantum Research team can interact, co-creating the next generation of imaging systems which will have the ability to transform security, healthcare and transportation. The Wolfson Foundation is an independent grant-making charity which has the fundamental aim of improving the civic health of society, mainly through education and research.
A research team of eight academics and more than 60 researchers will:
• Combine and exploit new techniques to create a step change in deep body and brain imaging;
• Develop the quantum technologies needed to make new forms of imaging that cannot be achieved classically;
• Use quantum technologies to answer fundamental questions about quantum behaviour itself.
