Congratulations, Dr Atreyee Mishra!

We are very proud to announce that Atreyee passed her viva voce examination with minor corrections. Atreyee’s thesis was entitled “Bioactivity of Substituted Copper Pyrithione Complexes”. Atreyee will now return to her beloved home country, India, to seek an industrial position there. We wish her all the very best! Below is a picture of the celebrations with both supervisors.

Welcome, John!

We are delighted to welcome John Richards as a Master’s of Science by Research student in the lab. John completed his Bachelor in Natural Sciences (Chemistry-Biology) at Durham University. He is interested in the bioinorganic chemistry of cuproproteins. Welcome!
