Staff Profile

Emeritus Professor Calum McNeil

Professor of Biological Sensor Systems


I founded the Diagnostic & Therapeutic Technologies Research Group (D&TT) in 1987. The work of D&TT is targeted towards Healthcare Engineering, Science and Technology. The overall aim is to improve rapid clinical diagnostic technologies and to engineer technological approaches which can help to elucidate the molecular pathways that cause degenerative diseases.

I retired in July 2018, however, as Emeritus Professor, I am still involved in major research projects funded by UKRI and the EC. These are:

Personal Risk Assessment in Febrile Illness to Optimize Real-life Management Across the EU (PERFORM): EC H2020 (Jan 2016 - Dec 2020).

Ultra-Sensitive Enhanced Nano-Sensing of Antimicrobial Resistance (u-Sense): EPSRC IRC Plus Project
(£1.39M, Oct 2018 - Sept 2022)
