A paper co-authored by Prof. Guy Lloyd-Jones has shown how gold nanoparticles could be used to release drugs inside tumours.
The research has been widely reported on, with articles appearing on the BBC and various national and international newspapers as well as coverage on Radio and TV.
Prof. Guy Lloyd-Jones has been awarded a 2018 Invitational Fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
The Fellowship is "designed to enable Japanese researchers to invite their overseas colleagues to Japan to participate in cooperative work and other academic activities."
Congratulations to Dr Andy Lawrence on his award of a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant.
The grants are awarded to early career researchers who have already produced excellent supervised work, are ready to work independently and show potential to be a research leader.
Fantastic news and richly deserved!
In early October I found out that I'd been selected to take part in the live finals of I'm A Scientist Get Me Out of Here. I'm a Scientist is an online public engagement event where students meet and chat to scientists from all over the world.
On Friday 4th November 2016, we welcomed chemistry teachers from 8 different schools in Edinburgh and beyond to the School of Chemistry to find out more about the fantastic research going on here.
Congratulations to Jessica Walker, from the Nudelman Group, who won 2nd prize in the Freeze-Frames Competition at the UK Cryo-Microscopy Group meeting last week.
The Freeze Frames competition is held annually at the Cryo Microscopy Group meeting as an antidote to the usual poster competition. It allows postgraduate students and post-docs to present a short summary of their work to the whole conference.
