Simulation of 400 Proton-Proton collisions in just one 25 nano-second bunch crossing at the Super-LHC
Professor Phil Allport, from the Department of Physics, has been elected Upgrade Coordinator of the 3,000 physicist strong ATLAS collaboration, a £200 million international programme, at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
Professor Allport is Coordinator of Research in the School of Physical Sciences, Director of the Liverpool Semiconductor Detector Centre, Head of the Particle Physics Group and Chair of the Institute of Physics High Energy Particle Physics Group.
The UK is one of the biggest contributors to the LHC project. Through the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) which funds the UK particle physics programme, including the CERN subscription, the UK has contributed vital hardware, computing and scientific knowledge.
The ATLAS Experiment reproduces conditions in the Universe within a pico-second after the Big Bang, allowing searches for massive particles, such as the proposed Higgs Boson or Supersymmetric Particles. These are believed to account for how all fundamental particles came to have their masses and how the Universe came to have the properties we see today.

In a UK first, we've launched a new Research Technical Professional Career Pathway. Technical & research support staff are essential to UK research & innovation, and this scheme aims to improve the career pathways of colleagues in these roles.
A new digital tool will use climate data to help better predict and prepare for infectious disease outbreaks in the Horn of Africa.
Funded by @wellcometrust, the project is led by @LivUni_IVES with partners from Italy, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda & Somalia.
