This proposal is a 24-month Marie Curie Global Fellowship scheme which involves a British experienced researcher to undertake a training-through-research project on the development of cutting-edge diamond based nanomaterials for biosensing applications (DNA-BIO) in liaison with National Institutes for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan. Dr. Haitao Ye has been conducting original research into diamond growth and characterisation and device fabrication at University of Leicester (UoL), and has established an excellent track record. NIMS is a world-leading research institution in the field with an international reputation of technological innovation, enterprise participation, and knowledge transfer. The proposal will tackle the challenging development of multifunctional nanodiamond species and assess their applications to bioimaging and sensing. Success will deliver new approaches for both surface functionalisation and doping of nanodiamonds and bring high-resolution bioimaging sensors to the research community. It will contribute to the EU’s economy by developing next-generation biomedical sensor and significantly widening the competences of the fellow to reach his professional maturity with interdisciplinary expertise and complementary skills unique to the ERA. The fellow is leading the development of UoL’s teaching and research activities in surface engineering and biomaterials and the highest quality training under supervision of internationally leading scientists is indispensable for his career development which will in turn benefit the UK and the EU.
