Marzhan Sypabekova (Nazarbayev University, National Laboratory Astana, Kazakhstan) is doing a 4 month placement in Bath, funded by a Newton Fund / British Council Researcher Links travel grant.
Serife Ustuner joins the group, initially for her MRes project, which will follow on to her PhD project on microRNA detection.
Serife is an Integrated PhD student within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemical Technologies.
