Innovation centre adds Milne to team

stephen-milneCensis, the Scottish Innovation Centre for Sensor and Imaging Systems, has strengthened its team with the appointment of medical technology expert Stephen Milne.

Dr Milne, who previously worked at the Digital Health and Care Institute, has joined the Glasgow-based organisation as a business development manager.

After obtaining a European MEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Glasgow, Dr Milne began his career in roles at technology and engineering firms Agilent Technologies and Freescale Semiconductor.

During his Doctorate within the Medical Devices Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Strathclyde, he began focussing on medical technology, developing a Bluetooth sensor device to analyse hydration levels through markers contained in sweat.

Dr Milne also led on an international research project in Qatar exploring analytical tools for wound care.

More recently, he was awarded a Saltire Fellowship, an accolade which is part of a first-class executive leadership programme designed to grow and connect talent driving the Scottish economy. During the course, he spent time at Babson College in Boston, the top-rated US business school for entrepreneurship.

Mark Begbie, Business Development Director at CENSIS, said: “With an impressive track record in research, product innovation and strong links in academia, Stephen is a valuable new addition to our business development team.

“His experience in applying sensor technology to enhance medical practice in the UK and overseas will add another string to our bow, enabling us to look at further opportunities for the different applications of sensors in healthcare.”
