The WestChem Research day was recently held at the University of Strathclyde. Talks were given by students from both Glasgow and Strathclyde universities and a plenary lecture by Professor Sabine Flitsch, Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Manchester. After an interesting day of talks, Katie won the prize for best talk.
Gary’s work on the discovery of a new class of tripeptide emulsifiers is featured on the front cover of Advanced Materials and has received write-ups in several online science sites. The work has been done in collaboration with the Ulijn group and Macphie of Glenbervie (a food ingredients company). Text Below from ScienceDaily: […]
In an intense six week period leading up to Christmas, 2015, Ivan wrote, revised and completed his PhD thesis. This work was the culmination of just under 3 years of study within the field of experimental and computational approaches to understanding the nanostructure of Fmoc-based dipeptide systems. Ivan’s work considered the fundamental questions of whether gels […]
