The Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) was one of the projects in Wales visited by Johannes Hahn, the EU Commissioner for Regional Policy. Commissioner Hahn, who is responsible for regional policy and structural funds, was accompanied by Alun Davies, Welsh Government Deputy Minister for European Programmes. He visited the University during a wider visit to Wales this week, where he met Welsh Ministers and visited a range of EU projects, to see first hand how EU funds are being invested across the region.

In December of 2011 the second Institute of Life Sciences Building (ILS2) and Centre for NanoHealth (CNH) which is based within the ILS2 building, were officially opened by the first minister Carwyn Jones. The two projects worth in excess of £50million are funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Welsh Government, the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (ABMU) Health Board, Swansea University and Private Industry.
The new seven storey, 6,000 square metre ILS2 building has been built on ABMU Health Board land adjacent to the award-winning ILS Phase One building. In addition to the CNH which is a joint project between the Colleges of Engineering and Medicine, ILS2 is also home to the College of Medicine Research Centres: Centre for Health Informatics, Research and Evaluation (CHIRAL); MRI/CT Imaging Suite; and Clinical Research Facility.
Professor Gareth Morgan, Head of the College of Medicine at Swansea University, said: “The second phase of the Institute of Life Science will give researchers and scientists the contemporary, fit-for-purpose, working environment that they require to undertake world-class and internationally recognised research.
ILS2 & CNH also bring big benefits for business in Wales. Business incubation facilities will triple in size with a range of fully operational units, located at the top of the seven storey building, commanding some of the best views in Wales. They will provide the perfect location for high-growth companies in bioscience, medical and healthcare related fields. Read article on Swansea University's news pages.

CNH Research Forum
To ensure everyone can fully take advantage of the fantastic opportunities afforded through affiliation with the CNH facility, we would like to establish a CNH researchers’ forum to promote and foster interdisciplinary collaborations between research students and staff.
The CNH forum will be fairly informal and driven largely by the researchers, with the support of CNH academics. The CNH Research Forum will aim to:
• Encourage networking and collaborations.
• Establish research clinics and Q and A sessions.
• Arrange seminars with invited internal and external speakers, linked in with the biomed seminar series and those held within the MNC and any future events hosted by CNH.
The forum will take place on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, in ILS1 Seminar Room. The first will take place on the 23rd of October and begin with coffee at 10.45am. Please keep an eye on the CNH research forum programme that we are going to attached in the website.
The researchers and students working in CNH will present a 5 MINUTES short talk with ONE power point slide on their current work so that we all have a better understanding of the wide variety of research being undertaken within the centre.
If you are interested in presenting your work and getting to know other researchers within CNH, please send your preferred date/s and a title of your project to Kelly Walker (email@example.com).
NanoHealth and NanoTechnology Workshop - Friday 15th June 2012 see flyer
This year the Centre for NanoHealth will again be represented at the BioWales 2012 Event. We will be sharing the exhibition stand with other Swansea University Projects.
Dr Steve Conlan, Co-Director for CNH will be presenting at the event.
We have four representatives (two each from College of Engineering and College of Medicine) who will be involved in 1-1 borkerage meetings with a range of participants to promote new relationships and collaburation with industry.Follow this link to the BioWales site.
