Gwyddonwyr Cymru yn helpu i gadw ein bwyd yn iach, yn ddiogel ac yn gynaliadwy

Kirstie Goggin in the lab

Mae llawer o’r bwyd yn y DU yn dod drwy gadwyni cyflenwi sy’n aml yn gymhleth ac yn cynnwys nifer o gynhyrchwyr a phroseswyr o bedwar ban byd. Yn anffodus, gall hyn arwain at arferion anghyfreithlon a/neu anfoesol oherwydd gall rhai cynhwysion gael eu halogi gan ddifwynwyr neu eu caffael o ffynonellau annymunol.

Dylunio a datblygu system newydd ar gyfer sychrewi di-haint samplau bach o hydoddiant dyfrllyd (Safbwynt Academaidd)

(English) Cardiff Metropolitan University has recently had its first KESS PhD completion; the project developed novel packaging solutions for the freeze-drying of specialist pharmaceuticals. The KESS student, Dr Chris Cherry, was based at the host company, MicroPharm Ltd in West Wales. The academic supervision for the project was provided jointly by The National Centre for Product Design & Development Research (PDR) and The Cardiff School of Health Sciences (CSHS); both academic schools are based on Cardiff Met’s Llandaff Campus. The KESS project covered the science of mass and heat transfer characterisation through to the challenges of maintaining sterility and containment within a freeze dryer. This research project delivered a very successful PhD in just over three years. In addition, the collaborative nature of the project has derived a range of supplementary benefits for the student, company and university. This case study describes the chronology of the KESS project, and attempts to capture the tangible (and intangible) benefits to the three main parties.

Ffyrdd newydd o drin ffenomenon Raynaud (Safbwynt Academaidd)

(English) The KESS project essentially looked at the provision of a better glove; the problem with most gloves is that they tend to be randomly made up of the materials available at that time. There are some very good glove materials available on the market, but consideration needs to be taken when looking at the combinations and the creations of the gloves.

As part of the KESS project we looked to generate a test which is less destructive and better for the patient/subject, while at the same time giving us the same information so we have that aspect, which means that the people/the end user will be benefitting. The project has created a test bed that we can use, and created a good link with the Raynaud’s and Scleroderma association who are the main beneficiaries to some extent. It’s tested and produced a methodology to test gloves and from that we have managed to get the data in.

Patrymau gweithgarwch mewn mamaliaid: beth yw costau adsefydlu?

The impact for the RSPCA has been significant in that they have been able to review their rehabilitation and release strategies based on the work we have done together. This means more effective and successful care for Badgers in the future but also, the RSPCA (and other organisations) have a framework for best practise for the reintroduction of any rehabilitated animals.

As a result of the public engagement work we have undertaken, such as appearing on television and radio, the profiles of both the RSPCA and Swansea University have been raised. Improving public awareness of environmental issues is an important outcome of projects such as this, with not only societal impact, but future economic impact as it leads to improved student recruitment to the university.
