2 PhD Studentships in Biological Sciences: Proteomics and Imaging of Hair and Skin – Durham University

The deadline for applications is Friday 4th July 2014

The first project is to study the proteomics and behaviour of skin cells in response to stress (with Dr. Adam Benham). The second project is to apply advanced imaging techniques and proteomics to study changes in hair structure in response to hair treatments (with Dr. Arto Määttä and Dr. Tim Hawkins). Both projects involve industrial collaboration with Procter & Gamble.

We are looking for two outstanding students who have an upper second or first class undergraduate degree in a scientific discipline, preferably a biological science, with an interest in applying cutting edge techniques to biological problems of industrial relevance.

For further information and questions, please contact us by e-mail:

Adam.Benham@durham.ac.uk, Arto.Maatta@durham.ac.uk, t.j.hawkins@durham.ac.uk.

The complexity of TB diagnosis: Can chemistry contribute? June Workshop at Bangor University

The complexity of TB diagnosis: Can chemistry

contribute?

 

 TB (2)

Friday the 21st of June 2013

 

Bangor University

School of Chemistry

The Orton Lecture Theatre

Bangor University

LL57 2UW

 

Supported by the Chemistry Biology Interface Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry

This workshop is aimed to highlight the novel research that is taking place at the interface between biology and chemistry; whilst enhancing the possibilities to network on a regional and international level with regards to the detection of TB.

The WHO has identified a critical need for a point of care sensor for the detection of TB that works in patients co-infected with HIV, and have suggested that multiplex assays offer a likely solution.

The workshop will pull together experts in the field of the detection of TB. The meeting is hoped to generate new research collaborations and future funding applications.

A full program will follow shortly.
