ThuNDDAR is supported by EPSRC who have a vision to accelerate the translation of research to healthcare applications. They will achieve this by supporting the UK’s research strengths in computation, engineering, mathematics and physical sciences. They also wish to maximise business, charity and clinical engagement in research.

Some of the grand challenges are

  • Developing Future Therapies
  • Frontiers of Physical Intervention
  • Optimising Treatment
  • Transforming Community Health and Care
  • Advanced materials
  • Medical device design and innovation
  • Novel computational and mathematical sciences
  • Novel imaging technologies

ThUNDDAR hope therapeutic ultrasound will address some of these challenges. You can read more about EPSRC’s strategic plan here https://www.epsrc.ac.uk/about/plans/strategicplan/
