Investigating oxygen transport efficiencies in precision-cut liver slice-based organ-on-a-chip devices (2021)
Journal Article
Christensen, M. G., Cawthorne, C., Dyer, C. E., Greenman, J., & Pamme, N. (2021). Investigating oxygen transport efficiencies in precision-cut liver slice-based organ-on-a-chip devices. Microfluidics and Nanofluidics, 25(4), https://doi.org/10.1007/s10404-021-02434-x

Microfluidic ‘organ-on-a-chip’ devices hold great potential for better mimicking the continuous flow microenvironment experienced by tissue and cells in vivo, thereby ensuring realistic transport of nutrients and elimination of waste products. Howeve... Read More about Investigating oxygen transport efficiencies in precision-cut liver slice-based organ-on-a-chip devices.

Rethinking urban adaptation as a scalar geopolitics of climate governance: climate policy in the devolved territories of the UK (2020)
Journal Article
Kythreotis, A., Jonas, A. E., Mercer, T., & Marsden, T. (2020). Rethinking urban adaptation as a scalar geopolitics of climate governance: climate policy in the devolved territories of the UK. Territory, Politics, Governance, https://doi.org/10.1080/21622671.2020.1837220

This paper exposes missing interconnections between the urban, national and international scales in the analysis of climate adaptation policy and territorial governance in the UK. Drawing upon the results of interviews with adaptation stakeholders in...

Microfluidic-Based Electrochemical Immunosensing of Ferritin (2020)
Journal Article
Garg, M., Christensen, M. G., Iles, A., Sharma, A. L., Singh, S., & Pamme, N. (2020). Microfluidic-Based Electrochemical Immunosensing of Ferritin. Biosensors, 10(8), https://doi.org/10.3390/bios10080091

Ferritin is a clinically important biomarker which reflects the state of iron in the body and is directly involved with anemia. Current methods available for ferritin estimation are generally not portable or they do not provide a fast response. To co...

Locating climate adaptation in urban and regional studies (2019)
Journal Article
Kythreotis, A. P., Kythreotis, A. P., Jonas, A. E., & Howarth, C. (2020). Locating climate adaptation in urban and regional studies. Regional studies, 54(4), 576-588. https://doi.org/10.1080/00343404.2019.1678744

This paper adds new insights to the relationship between city-regionalism, the territorial logics of the competition state and how climate adaptation is located in state spaces. Whilst climate adaptation governance is positioned within national econo... Read More about Locating climate adaptation in urban and regional studies.

City-regionalism as countervailing geopolitical processes: The evolution and dynamics of Yangtze River Delta region, China (2019)
Journal Article
Li, Y., & Jonas, A. E. (2019). City-regionalism as countervailing geopolitical processes: The evolution and dynamics of Yangtze River Delta region, China. Political Geography, 73, 70-81. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.polgeo.2019.05.014

In many countries, national governments deploy city-regionalism not simply as a domestic policy tool but also as a geopolitical device enabling the internationalization of state territory and economy. Focusing upon the evolution of Yangtze River Delt... Read More about City-regionalism as countervailing geopolitical processes: The evolution and dynamics of Yangtze River Delta region, China.

A method for determining average iron content of ferritin by measuring its optical dispersion (2019)
Journal Article
