Pedro Estrela visits the group of Prof Sven Ingebrandt at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern in Zweibrucken, Germany (28-29 May 2013)
Pedro Estrela receives an International Research Mobility Award from the University of Bath for a follow-up research visit to Rhodes University, South Africa.
Pedro Estrela spends 2 weeks working in the group of Prof Janice Limson at the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Biotechnology, Rhodes University, South Africa (25 March – 5 April 2013).
The visit was funded by the Mellon Senior Scholars programme of Rhodes University
Pawan Jolly joins the group as a PhD student with a PROSENSE Marie Curie Fellowship. Project: “Electrochemical DNA-based sensor arrays for prostate cancer biomarker detection”
