Pavel Damborsky and Stefan Belicky, PROSENSE Marie Curie Fellows at the Slovak Academy of Sciences, are doing one month secondments in our group (27 April - 22 May).
Z. Yang, B. Kasprzyk-Hordern, C.G. Frost, P. Estrela, K.V. Thomas: "Community Sewage Sensors for Monitoring Public Health" (Viewpoint). Environmental Science and Technology 49 (2015) 5845-5846
Pawan Jolly was awarded a Cancer Research at Bath (CR@B) Seedcorn Grant for the project "An electrochemical biosensor platform for the sensitive detection of miRNAs specific for prostate cancer" in collaboration with Pedro Estrela and Prof Mark Lindsay (Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology).
The PhosphoSense technology, published in our recent Scientific Reports paper, has been highlighted in a number of local and national media as well as specialist press.
National and International trade press: Engineering and Technology Magazine, Manufacturing Chemist, Health Canal, Medical Device Network, Pharmaceutical Technology, Phys Org (US)

Jules Hammond won one of the awards for best poster at the Sensors in Medicine 2015 conference (24-26 March 2015, London, UK).
The poster was "Nanogap Generator–Collector Devices with Miniaturised Electronics for Analytical Applications" by Jules Hammond, Andrew Gross, Frank Marken and Pedro Estrela
Pedro Estrela gave a talk on "Label-free field-effect and impedimetric biosensors" at the Royal Society Scientific Seminar "Biosensors for diagnostics, environmental monitoring and water quality control", held in Glasgow, UK on 25-26 March 2015
Poster presented at Sensors in Medicine 2015, 24-26 March 2015, London, UK

PROSENSE Fellows Pavel Zhurauski, Susana Liebana (Applied Enzyme Technology Ltd) and Vibha Tamboli (Cardiff University), together with SEWPROF Fellow Zhugen Yang held a stand at the Family Science Fair in Victoria Park, Bath as part of the Bath Taps into Science festival on the 21 March.
The stand had great success with the Fellows showing the general public and school pupils how biosensors work (and can be fun!).
