Accuracy and predictive value of thermometry
Research on the accuracy and predictive value of thermometry in use in the NHS and in homes, which could have important implications for childhood illness, for pandemic preparedness, and for those at risk of sepsis, including chemotherapy patients. The project may include opportunities to collaborate with world-leading thermometry experts at the UK National Physical Laboratory, and/or leading medical physicists in the UK National Body Temperature Measurement Group.
Applications are open for entry in the 2021-22 academic year and will close at 12:00 midday on Friday 9th July.
