Case Studies from 2011: ICT
A set of case studies which highlight some of the research funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in 2011.
Could new technology help earlier diagnosis of heart disease?
Could new sound synchronisation technology hold the key to earlier diagnosis of heart disease?
‘Hearing dummies’ software paves the way for tailor-made hearing aids
New software ‘hearing dummies’ are part of cutting-edge research that promises to revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of hearing impairments.

EPSRC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
