Dr Szyniszewski's groundbreaking work on metallic foam with ceramic inserts is staged at the 'Growing our Future' exhibition hosted by Newcastle's Life Science Centre.

Dr Szyniszewski's and co-authors' research, as detailed in their publication in Nature, explores the unique properties and applications of metallic foam with ceramic inserts. The combination of these materials holds immense potential for diverse industrial applications, ranging from construction to aerospace.

The Life Science Centre, situated in Newcastle upon Tyne, has established itself as a dynamic hub for scientific collaboration and innovation. The new 'Growing our Future' exhibition spotlights how local scientists and researchers are taking inspiration from nature and forging ahead with research to tackle global challenges in a sustainable way. Readers are encouraged to visit the exhibition or to read about it at the Life Science Centre's blog.
