Having recently had their research published in Applied Physics Letters, our Cardiff based academics, NRN062, have been making an impact with their investigations.

Researching the effects electric microwaves have upon a living organism using the 'glow in the dark' bacteria 'Vibrio fischeri' they discovered a significant reaction which is now leading them to collaborate with the Welsh Heart Institute to discover the impact emissions from our modern technologies are posing to our health. 

Please see below a list of the coverage project NRN062 led by Dr. Catrin F Williams received.
