Prof. Bob Webb – Challenges for the future Q. Just tell us about the grand breaking research that has been carried out at the University and the differences that some of that researches are making to our lives. We are quite fortune at Nottingham that we are a broad base University, what that mean is we have a whole range of disciplines, going from art and humanities, social sciences, medical research, veterinary research sciences, and that’s mean there are major opportunities for us. As well as being just discipline base, it also means we have a lot multi-disciplinary research. When one thinks about Nottingham, we have a whole range of cutting-edge discovery then that’s actually development through what apply, approaches and more at application. I suppose that the one people around the world would recognise is the development of MRI, this came out the basic research at Nottingham, Peter Mansfield got the Nobel Prize for that. And that just shows the way the basic research can be taken right through to ready be applied and have an impact worldwide.
