Travis represents as finalist in Images of Research

Congratulations to 1st year PhD student Travis Hesketh who was shortlisted as a finalist in Strathclyde’s “Images of Research”. Travis created his own thought provoking image of one of our latest tripeptide projects that demonstrates the ability of these remarkable peptides to form highly organised materials that also structure water through their pores. Travis did […]
