Imperial College London: Personalised Healthcare

"Many pharmaceuticals have idiosyncratic action when administered. The concept that healthcare solutions can be tailored to the individual is one that is attractive as it potentially allows a better match of patient and drug.

Identifying signatures indicative of treatment outcome are key to personalising medicine. Top–down systems biology offers an opportunity to help predict drug efficiacy and avoid adverse reactions.

Providing optimised healthcare on an individual basis will benefit both patients and clinicians through improved drug choice, efficacy and reduced costs. From the work we have conducted using large scales molecular epidemiology studies using metabolic phenotyping, it is clearer than ever before that a one–size–fits–all solution to drug therapy is not a sustainable or desirable model. Given the diversity of human biochemistry, such phenotypes are important in personalising medicine as they provide clues as to the influences of a variety of factors including underlying genetics, environmental stress, nutritional status and gut microbial activity."

Co-Lab: Practice and Theory Research Lab

"The Co–Lab has been established to provide essential support for research staff engaged in creative media practice from within the Media School, National Centre for Computer Animation and School of Design, Engineering and Computing at Bournemouth University.

Sharing knowledge across disciplines, our aim is to create a space in which resources, ideas and new areas of research can be opened up and supported."

New International Journal of Design Creativity and Innovation

"International Journal of Design Creativity and Innovation is an international publication that provides a forum for discussing the nature and potential of creativity and innovation in design from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Design creativity and innovation is truly an interdisciplinary academic research field that will interest and stimulate researchers of engineering design, industrial design, architecture, art, and similar areas. The journal aims to not only promote existing research disciplines but also pioneer a new one that lies in the intermediate area between the domains of systems engineering, information technology, computer science, social science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, linguistics, and related fields. The journal welcomes various kinds of research papers (analytical studies, constructive studies, case studies, field studies, literature surveys, etc.) that will establish the basis for the academic discipline of design creativity and innovation."
