Sam at Pint of Science Newcastle

The group is very proud of Sam Firth (4th year PhD student), who participated in Pint of Science Newcastle yesterday and shared her knowledge about all things copper to the general public. Well done, Sam! Here’s a photo of Sam in action:

We are recruiting!

We have one funded, 4-year PhD position that will suit candidates with a background in biochemistry or microbiology. The project will examine how metal availability affects host-microbiota relationships. More details here: https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/a-balancing-act-how-hosts-control-metal-availability-to-their-microbiota/?p137656.

We are also looking for a Master’s of Science by Research student to work on this project.

If you are interested, please contact Karrera.

Bye, Jin!

We are very sad to bid farewell to Jin Hong, who has completed her Master’s by Research year with us. We went to the Durham Cat Cafe to celebrate her time in Durham, but we were so busy playing with the cats, we forgot to take a group picture! We wish Jin all the very best in her future endeavours.
