Prof. Niel Telling

Keele University, UK

Neil Telling is a Professor in Biomedical NanoPhysics at the University of Keele. He started his research career studying the physical and magnetic properties of thin films and multilayers for advanced data storage devices. Subsequently the focus of his research has evolved and now centres around the investigation and application of nanoscience in biomedical areas. This includes developing a better understanding and control of the properties of magnetic nanoparticles in fluid suspension, as well as investigating how these properties change following the interaction of the nanoparticles with biological environments (for example after their association with cells). Working with multidisciplinary groups that include Chemists, Biologists and Clinicians, his research targets the development of new methods and materials for nanotechnology-based biomedical treatments. Current projects include magnetic nanoparticle hyperthermia for cancer therapy, and magneto-mechanical based methods for applications in regenerative medicine.
