Dr Jeff Newman is the Director of the Advanced Biosciences Programme and the Advanced Biotechnology Programme.
Dr Newman is also involved in the development of Microsystems Technology (MST), particularly for analytical applications. This involves microfluidics, biosensors, chemical sensors and various assay formats. He currently has a group of 3 PhD students. Jeff is currently managing a project which involves setting up a University Spin-Out Company in order to exploit some internally developed analytical technology.
He is involved in teaching on all of the internal, as well as several external MSc courses. He also runs an average of 4 to 5 Masters projects every summer. As a spin-off from these projects, Jeff has developed a contaminated water remediation technology based on electrochemical peroxidation.
