A warm welcome to Dr Yiwen Pei who joined us as PDRA in Polymer Chemistry and will be helping our efforts to synthesise new biodegradable copolymers. Yawed, originally from Shanghai, studied in New Zeland for both Bachelor, Master and PhD and after a period in Australia, she moved to the UK. We very happy to have her as part of the team as she brings a unique expertise in polymer chemistry and characterisation.
After 4yrs as PhD and 3yrs as PDRA, Adrian is leaving us to join Tessela
where he will put his excellent computational and data analysis skills to a great use. Adrian has been a great asset in our team and I'm quite sure he will be too in the new place. In bocca al lupo!
A nice effort from Guy Yealland (PhD class 2015) who worked with us and Dr Mortiboys and Prof Bandmann from the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience to screen and optimise drugs for rescuing mitochondrial function in primary cells coming from Parkinson Patients. Well done to you and to Heather
