The Horrocks group are extremely grateful for the kind donation from Dr. Jim Love to the Edinburgh Single-Molecule Biophysics Group. The donation will partly be used to upgrade one of their microscopes to enable the group to do live cell imaging of cultured neuronal cells. This added capability will greatly enhance the work they can do in the group.
Congratulations to Harvey Dale, a PhD student in the Lloyd-Jones group, who was awarded first prize by Prof Ben List for his poster presentation “Taming Ambident Triazole Nucleophiles: Molecular Recognition and Organocatalysis“. The prize was awarded at the SCI Advances in Organocatalysis Conference, which was recently held in London.
Prof. Polly Arnold has been talking to Nature about her research into the chemistry of neptunium. She discusses how her work could help future generations deal with the nuclear waste we are currently generating.
Prof. Euan Brechin's article entitled "Pressure induced enhancement of the magnetic ordering temperature in rhenium(IV) monomers" has also been included in the section on rhenium.
Well done to Jianzhu “Cora” Wang (a PhD student in the Lusby group) who received a prize for her poster titled “Promoting Endo/Exo Diels-Alder Selectivity using a Simple Pd2L4 Catalyst” at the annual RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry meeting held at Lancaster University on on Tuesday 18th Dec.
Proteus Director Prof Mark Bradley and Clinical Lead Prof Kev Dhaliwal, are to be awarded the Combined Royal Colleges Medal from the Royal Photographic Society for “an outstanding contribution to the advancement and/or application of medical photography or the wider field of medical imaging”.
Dr Jennifer Garden and Dr Amanda Jarvis were recently interviewd by the University of Edinburgh for their Staff Spotlight feature. Both talk about their experiences of being early career researchers and holders of Christina Miller Fellowships.
