It’s not everyday that you get to graduate 3 PhD students from the group. Congratulations to Fergus (now postdoc in the Jamieson lab, Glasgow), David (now working with Sygnature Discovery, Nottingham), and Richard (now postdoc in the Wallace lab, Edinburgh)!
What a fantastic week rounded off with Chris nailing his PhD viva. We will miss him when he starts at Biogelx, we need a new pun-master to keep the group groaning.
Congratulations to all of the Hulme group members presenting at this year’s conference – great talks from Alisia and Sally; and posters by Alan and Kristel. Great to see more winners in the Hulme group with presentation prizes in the Chemical Biology section for both Sally and Kristel.
Amazing weather at this year’s Organic Firbush, and great presentations from group members Alan (oral), Kristel (oral), Marie (poster) and Hector (poster).
Sally and Alan were selected to present posters at the 2018 RSC Chemical Biology and Bio-Organic Group Early Career Researcher meeting in Leeds on 10th May. There was a great speaker line-up with Campopiano Group member, Annabel Serpico, presenting her work on a stereo-inverting amino transferase and a Plenary lecture from Professor Anna Mapp (University of Michigan).
Congratulations to group member Chris who has not only submitted his PhD thesis this week, but has also secured a job with the Strathclyde University spin-out company Biogelx.
Congratulations also to postdoc Alessio who is the latest Hulme group member to be heading down to work with Sygnature Discovery in Nottingham later in the summer.
Congratulations Sally on being awarded an RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector International Travel Prize. Sally is going to present her work at the 19th Tetrahedron Meeting at Lake Garda, Italy in June.
