Inspirational video featuring Catz Fellow Dr Eleanor Stride

The research of St Catherine’s Fellow Dr Eleanor Stride is featured in an inspirational video, created to encourage students to consider a career in Engineering.

Dr Eleanor Stride is a biomedical engineer working at Oxford University to develop revolutionary new methods for delivering chemotherapy drugs.  Eleanor works to create and control micro-bubbles which can be injected into the bloodstream of cancer patients, magnetically guided to the site of the cancer and then burst using ultrasound, releasing the chemotherapy drugs at the site of the cancer.  It’s an approach that could revolutionise the delivery of chemotherapy to patients, avoiding the widespread destruction of healthy cells that is unavoidable with present treatments.

‘Born to Engineer – Eleanor Stride’ was produced for the ERA Foundation as part of a pilot scheme to develop media that can be used both online and offline to attract young people toward engineering education and careers. To watch the video, click here.
