Congratulations to Jack on winning the Biomolecular Interactions Research Group’s Poster Prize at this year’s Research Away Day! Jack presented his work on Cu-dependent nitrous oxide reductases.
Today Karrera presented the group’s work on Cu handling in pathogenic Neisseria at the Inorganic Biochemistry Discussion Group. We are very grateful for the helpful discussions that followed. The group is now swimming in loads of ideas!
Well done to Sam for her excellent flash presentation at the virtual York Microbiology Symposium today!
We are very pleased to launch this collection for the Microbiology Society’s flagship journal Microbiology. The collection is guest-edited by Dr Jen Cavet (University of Manchester). How fabulous is the cover image by our MScR student Jin Hong!
Our paper, “Role of Glutathione in Buffering Excess Intracellular Copper in Streptococcus pyogenes“ is now published in mBio. Congratulations to Louisa and co-authors!
Karrera delivered a virtual invited talk for the University of East Anglia School of Chemistry seminar series. We hope that an actual visit to Norwich will be possible in the near future.
The group welcomes Isabel Holmes, a 4th year Natural Sciences undergraduate co-supervised by Prof. Steven Cobb (Department of Chemistry), and Jin Hong, a Masters by Research student. Both Issy and Jin will study Zn handling in Group A Streptococcus.
