Ian Bond on self-healing materials
22 January 2008
Dr Ian Bond from the Department of Aerospace Engineering is taking part in the BBC Radio Four programme Material World on Thursday 24 January at 4.30 pm.
Material World reports on developments across the sciences, inviting scientists to describe their research projects. Dr Bond will talk about the work of the Multifunctional Composites Group within the Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science, which is carrying out research on self-healing materials that incorporate features of the healing mechanisms of both the human circulatory system and the vascular system found in plants.
More information about the group’s work can be found on its website.
