Attendance at the Gordon Research Conference on Chemistry and Biology of Peptides 2020 in Ventura, CA, USA. (9-14/02/2020) Benoit Darlot presented his work on tick saliva protein inspired anti-inflammatory peptides to the peptide community in Ventura. Great opportunity to share the lab’s work and get inspiration from the growing peptide community. (Blog by B.D.)
Race for Life Oxford 5k (15/07/2019). Oxford Chemistry Research Laboratory Team raised £235 for Cancer Research UK! Big thanks to everyone who has supported us. Photo with Emily Flashman, Leah Taylor Kearney and budding chemists.
Last day in the lab for Mark White, who will be moving to Australia to start his ARC DECRA fellowship in University of Sydney. All the best!
Kawamura Group DPhil students presented their work at the RSC Chemical Biology and Bio–organic Group Postgraduate Symposium in Southampton. Great job Loane Serano, Klem Simelis, Grace Roper & Raphael Reinbold for presenting their posters, and Benoit Darlot for the oral presentation on his exciting work on anti-inflammatory peptides derived from tick saliva proteins – our collaborative work with Prof. Shoumo Bhattacharya.
