Public engagement - Manchester Museum
In 'Matrix has got Talent', Ceri Harrop was beaten at her own game when rookies Andrew Gilmore and Natalia Sanchez-Soriano stole the show (and the majority of the votes!). Organiser, Douglas Dyer, came back from the brink the win the second round. Great fun was had by all, and thanks to Simon Clark for chairing the event.
We are now gearing up for 'The Body Experience' at The Manchester Museum on Sat March 19th in collaboration with other colleagues from FLS. So far we have Teams for lungs, eye, tendon, breast all confirmed and awaiting others. Please contact Ceri Harrop, Nasreen Akhtar or Simon Clark for more information. Volunteers required to help run stands on the day so please get involved if you can.
Sarah Al Youha
Sarah was a joint PhD student with Karl Kadler and Gus McGrouther, and she successfully defended her PhD viva last week. Prof. Michael Kjaer (Institute of Sports Medicine Bispebjerg Hospital,Copenhagen) was Sarah's external examiner. Sarah also passed her medical school finals in January. She is the first intercalating PhD medical student of the University. Congratulations to 'double doctor' Sarah!
Adam Byron spent two weeks working at the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, in the lab of Professor Roman Zubarev, who is an expert in mass spectrometry.
The aim of Adam's visit was to learn a new approach to proteomic data analysis in order to advance his work on the proteomic analysis of adhesion signalling. His intensive visit to the lab was very useful as he generated a large amount of data on integrin adhesion complexes as well as becoming familiar with a new analytical technique. The visit was a result of a Career Development Award, which he received from the Faculty of Life Sciences.
