  • The perks of attending small conferences

    Sure, a conference on the other side of the world with thousands of participants from academia and industry sounds impressive. However, do not underestimate the perks of smaller conferences! In July 2018, I had the opportunity to attend the BBSRC...

  • What I learned about organoids from two recent conferences

    The aim of my PhD is to design a bioreactor to produce miniature tumours (organoids) in large scales for drug testing. Organoids are better than the more conventional 2D models for testing drugs because they closely mimic the 3D structure...

  • High Performance Computing Symposium 2018

    Computational simulations are becoming ever more integral to scientific research. Thanks to advances in computer hardware and modelling techniques, computational chemists are now able to accurately predict properties of materials before they are synthesised, explain what is going on at...
