Summary on Grant Application Form
This Discipline Hopping Award will enable Dr Ruth Goodridge to spend 24 months (0.5%FTE) working in a clinical environment at Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust. She will primarily be based in the Clinical Engineering Department at Queens Medical Centre (QMC), working alongside Prof. Dan Clark, but will also spend time in other departments (e.g. maxillofacial, cardiology) at QMC and Nottingham City Hospitals, and undertake an external placement at the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The overall aim of her discipline hop will be to identify clinical needs where devices fabricated by Additive Manufacturing & 3D-Printing (AM&3DP) could offer significant advantages and to accelerate the implementation of devices made from AM&3DP into these areas.
