Welcome to the IMPACT project

IMPACT aims to develop new approaches to cancer treatment using implanted miniaturised, wireless sensor chips the size of a grain of rice to monitor the minute-to-minute status of an individual tumour.

The IMPACT Project team consists of engineers, chemists, veterinary clinicians, social scientists and human cancer specialists from the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and the Western General Hospital. This multi-disciplinary group is led by Prof Alan Murray from the University of Edinburgh's School of Engineering.
