In the first HIC Director’s blog, Sherry welcomes the research project to the HIC as an important signal of intent in providing world-leading health research on campus.

“…And as we prepare to open up, we hope to be able to showcase a first example of multidisciplinary collaboration with Professor Des Fagan, from Lancaster University’s Architecture department. He has developed an innovative tool to design generative distancing in response to social distancing guidelines, providing businesses with the ability to respond swiftly to changes in layout, use of space and signage. Watch this space…literally!…”
