The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is the new system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions. It has replaced the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) and we'll find out at the end of December how Bath has done.
Part of the assessment included Impact Case Studies, which were submitted to cover a variety of the University's research areas.
As part of our efforts to communicate the impact our research has, the Research Marketing Team is currently making a short video which features many of these case studies. Each academic involved is being filmed speaking about the impact of their research.
Today we've been in the Chemistry labs filming Dr Chris Frost. His work has contributed to the creation of a device which can detect an infectious disease and identify it in just half an hour, making it really easy to start treatment quickly.
Here is Chris being filmed by our videographer Simon!
