Kish, Jedd and Aneika attended the Isolated Biomolecules and Biomolecular Interactions conference in Obergurgl, Austria. Congratulations to Kish who won the poster prize and to Jedd for giving an excellent talk.
Congratulations to Kish on his first mass spectrometry paper title "FAIMS enhances the detection of PTM crosstalk sites". An excellent collaboration between John Heath, Debbie Cunningham.
Excited that our metal-binding paper titled "Probing heavy metal binding to phycobiliproteins" is now published in FEBS J. Congratulations Jedd and Jas!
Great to have an in-person group Christmas meal together with the Cooper group.
Congratulations to Jas and Jedd on their latest paper titled "Rapid cyanobacteria species identification with high sensitivity using native mass spectrometry" in Analytical Chemistry. Great collaboration with CCAP and the Scottish Association for Marine Science.
Nice to see our work highlighted by the University of Birmingham and getting some great feedback. Have a look here for more information on what we do:
5 BSc students have joined the lab for a final year group project on metal binding proteins within algae. Welcome Tasnia, Johanna, Tyronne, Anika and Daniel!
Excited to see our work highlighted near the front page in the Analytical Scientist.
Alexandra Webb joins the lab for a summer studentship funded through the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund. Welcome Alex!
Sad to see our undergraduate summer project students, Asti, Adam and Billie leave after an excellent 6 weeks in the lab despite the difficulties the group faced.
Our latest paper is now online in Chemical Science and has been highlighted as "pick of the week" by the editors! Congratulations to Jedd and Manjari, and all other authors involved!
Have a look at the press release associated with it:
CONGRATULATIONS to all group members that graduated in 2021! Nik, Sarah, Laura all did excellent in their projects and will be missed.
Congratulations to Sarah, Laura, Nik and Arppana for completing their BSc/masters projects. It was great to have you in the lab. Hope you all stay in touch!
