3 From Atoms to Devices AN IDEAS FACTORY Your support will allow us to derive the greatest possible impact from this new development. Your donations, targeted towards the research areas which you are most interested in, will help us to recruit the very brightest talents to Leeds, both as PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. Between them, they will accelerate this work to achieve still greater impact, such as: • Drugs being delivered directly to cancer tumours; • Robots repairing faults in underground pipes; • Vulnerable communities equipped to face extreme weather; • Wearable monitors checking diabetics’ blood-sugar levels; • Liquid crystal lenses making old eyes young again. Researchers in the Engineering and Physical Sciences Quarter will advance work in a host of areas where Leeds already has a strong international reputation. The next few pages offer just a handful of examples of how your support could genuinely make a world of difference.
