A Proteus project led by Professor Mark Bradley has secured additional funding worth more than £11M for three Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Interdisciplinary Research Collaborations (IRCs) – Proteus, SPHERE and I-Sense.
Professor Polly Arnold is the recipient of this year's Chancellor's Award for Research.
The award recognises her exceptional work in the chemistry of bonding and reactivity in new compounds.
Established in 2003, the Chancellor’s Awards now reward staff in four categories for teaching, research, impact and showing great potential in early career research. The awards were given at a gala dinner at the Palace of Holyrood House.
Proteus has been nominated as the EPSRC Flagship Project for the International Reception at the AAAS 2018 Conference. EPSRC have asked us to represent EPSRC Proteus through our public engagement work and are delighted that we will bring our new mobile exhibit to the event.
Over 500 VIP guests and registered delegates are expected to attend the reception.
If you visited our Chemistry NMR facility last week, you would have noticed extensive new copper piping decorating the rooms. Nope, it is not Scotch whisky, but helium (He) that gently (during a normal operation) or intensely (during the refills) flows through them towards a large yellow balloon, where it is stored temporarily before being compressed into gas cylinders.
Congratulations to three researchers from the Lloyd-Jones group for their recent successes at scientific meetings.
Congratulations to Prof. Paul Barlow and Dr Andy Herbert who are scientific co-founders of Gemini Therapeutics, a new medical therapeutics company that is developing treatments for a common cause of blindness - age-related macular degeneration. The company has just announced $42.5 million of venture capital investment.
Dr Stephen Moggach has been featured in an article about the Diamond Light Source in Chemistry World.
The article highlights the diverse science taking place at the facility and includes a description of Stephen's research and how the Diamond facility helps him.
