New visiting researcher joins group

We are delighted to host Joan Carles Nadal Lozano from URV Tarragona for a three month research placement. Joan Carles will work on the development of MIPs for the pre-concentration and detection of drugs of abuse from biological fluids. I hear he is also a keen photographer so stay tuned for updates…

MIP2016 here we come!

The group will be attending the 9th International Conference on Molecular Imprinting (MIP2016) en masse with one oral and three poster presentations! Busy times ahead… This year the conference will be held in Lund, Sweden, the birthplace of non-covalent Molecular Imprinting, on June 26-30, 2016.
