Guidelines for Perioperative Care for Emergency Laparotomy Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Society Recommendations: Part 1—Preoperative: Diagnosis, Rapid Assessment and Optimization. World Journal of Surgery, https://doi.org/10.1007/s00268-021-05994-9

Background Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols reduce length of stay, complications and costs fora large number of elective surgical procedures. A similar, structured approach appears to improve outcomes, including mortality, for patien...

The Creep behaviour of Nickel alloy 718 manufactured by Laser Powder Bed Fusion (2021)
Journal Article
Sanchez, S., Gaspard, G., Hyde, C., Ashcroft, I., Ravi, G., & Clare, A. (in press). The Creep behaviour of Nickel alloy 718 manufactured by Laser Powder Bed Fusion. Materials and Design,

Components manufactured by laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) are limited by their performance for use in critical applications. LPBF materials have microstructural defects, such as suboptimal grain size and morphology, and macroscale anomalies, such as...

Discovery of Synergistic Material-Topography Combinations to Achieve Immunomodulatory Osteoinductive Biomaterials using a novel in vitro screening method: the ChemoTopoChip (2021)
Journal Article
Burroughs, L., Amer, M., Vassey, M., Koch, B., Figueredo, G., Mukonoweshuro, B., …Alexander, M. R. (in press). Discovery of Synergistic Material-Topography Combinations to Achieve Immunomodulatory Osteoinductive Biomaterials using a novel in vitro screening method: the ChemoTopoChip. Biomaterials, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biomaterials.2021.120740

Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are widely represented in regenerative medicine clinical strategies due to their compatibility with autologous implantation. Effective bone regeneration involves crosstalk between macrophages and hMSCs, with macro...

The chemistry of phosphines in constrained, well-defined microenvironments (2021)
Journal Article
Orton, G. R. F., Pilgrim, B. S., & Champness, N. R. (2021). The chemistry of phosphines in constrained, well-defined microenvironments. Chemical Society Reviews, https://doi.org/10.1039/d0cs01556c

Developments in the confinement of phosphines within micro- or nano-environments are explored. Phosphines are ubiquitous across metal coordination chemistry and underpin some of the most famous homogeneous transition metal catalysts. Constraining pho...

Skeleton Growth in Guinea Pigs and Humans (2021)
Journal Article
Skinner, Z., Clark, N., Rutland, S., Dawkins, A., & Rutland, C. S. (2021). Skeleton Growth in Guinea Pigs and Humans. Frontiers for Young Minds, 9,

Every animal has a skeleton made up of many different bones. Bones are vital. Without bones we would not be able to move, protect our internal organs, store important minerals, or even make some cell types! When we are young, in addition to growing,...
