Many of our courses ofer opportunities for students to develop their research skills and gain hands-on experience in a variety of contexts and settings.

This can help students gain relevant experience that can be further developed during study or in industry. At Lincoln, our research is making a real diference to society in the UK and around the world. We are home to academics who are leaders in their felds and who are addressing some of the world’s most pressing problems. These include Nigel Allinson MBE, Distinguished Professor of Image Engineering, whose work is improving cancer treatments (read more on page 29).

Improving Outcomes for Cancer Patients Lincoln’s internationally renowned expert in image engineering, Professor Nigel Allinson MBE, has developed new medical imaging technology that could revolutionise treatment for thousands of cancer patients. Developed as part of the £3.3 million OPTIma (Optimising Proton Therapy through Imaging) project, the technology makes it possible to provide more efective radiotherapy treatment for those living with cancer, using protons rather than X-rays to create more accurate three-dimensional images of a patient’s anatomy. The technology will be used in one of the UK’s two new NHS high- energy proton beam therapy centres, providing adaptive and highly personalised treatment planning and monitoring for patients with difcult-to-treat cancers. Research Lead: Professor Nigel Allinson MBE Promoting Peace in Post-confict Rwanda An arts project led by Lincoln’s Professor Ananda Breed is exploring how disciplines like dance, drama, and music can empower young people to be a driving force for peacebuilding in countries that have experienced confict, such as Rwanda. Mobile Arts for Peace (MAP) is using the arts as a platform for young people to share their experiences and communicate their ideas for confict prevention within their own communities. MAP has created a ‘toolkit’ for educators to teach the performing arts as well as ofering training sessions to enable them to deliver residential workshops for young people. The project has already helped children in fve provinces in Rwanda to improve their academic performance and enhance communications between them and their parents. Research Lead: Professor Ananda Breed Exploring Emerging Infectious Diseases Emerging infectious diseases are heavily infuenced by how and where we live. The Covid-19 outbreak has highlighted the importance of understanding this infuence. Dr Creighton Connolly, from the University of Lincoln’s School of Geography, has led an interdisciplinary research project which indicates that urban expansion is creating the conditions for infectious diseases to emerge and spread around the world. The research is furthering our understanding of how we live, now and in the future. Without this, public health policymakers locally, nationally, and internationally will be ill-equipped to identify and mitigate the heightened risk of infectious disease outbreaks posed by suburban sprawl.
