Research at the Imperial CRF discussed on Radio 4’s The Life Scientific

This week’s episode of the BBC Radio 4 programme The Life Scientific features European Inventor of the Year, Chris Toumazou, who reveals how his personal life and early research lie at the heart of his inventions.

As Chief Scientist at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London, Chris inspires engineers, doctors and other scientists to create medical devices for the 21st century.

Applying silicon chip technology, more commonly found inside mobile phones, he tackles seemingly insurmountable problems in medicine to create devices that bridge the electronic and biological worlds – from a digital plaster that monitors a patient’s vital signs to an artificial pancreas to treat diabetes which is currently being trialled at the ICRF.
