Had an amazing day at the Royal Society of Chemistry & Chemical Society of Japan Joint Symposium in Sendai. Lots of great science and a wonderful opportunity for the UK & Japanese chemical biologists to get to know each other. Thank you for inviting me to this fantastic symposium!
Very well done to the Oxford-GSK-Crick Chemical Biology CDT 2017 cohort for organsing a very successful chemical biology student conference ChemBiOx 2019! Congratulations!
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.
Gordon Research Conference on High Throughput Chemistry and Chemical Biology, ColbySawyer, New London, US, 2019 (2-7/06/2019) Delighted to join the Gordon Research Conference HTCCB 2019 and give a talk on “Chemical Probes to Study Epigenetic Regulation by Histone Demethylases in Health and Disease”. Fantastic to hear the cutting-edge research that is going on and to get to know many scientists in this area!
Great scientific discussions at the poster session in the Bedson Building at Newcastle University. Thanks to the medicinal chemistry / chemical biology groups for welcoming us, and in particular Celine Cano & Mike Waring for kindly organising this event.
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!
Many congratulations Oliver Coleman for passing his DPhil viva! Thanks to Ali Tavassoli and Paul Brennan for being his examiners. Thesis title – “Development, Synthesis and Characterisation of Chemical Probes for PHD Fingers”
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.
Congratulations Yara Alenazi for completing her D.Phil, thesis title “Targeting the chemokine signalling pathway using tick saliva peptides”. Thank you to the examiners Prof. Antje Beling and Prof. Charles Redwood. (Joint supervision – Prof. Shoumo Bhattacharya)
