Congratulations to Brooke for submitting her BScH thesis today. Brooke, who is supervised by Ivan and Dr Jon Sperry, successfully completed an ambitious project that included organic synthesis and the development of new biophysical tools to study protein-inhibitor interactions. She also contributed to a Review paper on targeting the Mycobacterium tuberculosis enzyme isocitrate lyase to treat tuberculosis. Well done Brooke.
We also welcome three new students to our group today. Nabangshu Sharma, who did his MSc at the University of Delhi, joins us as a PhD student. Johanna Viluma and Jane Pernes, both from the University of Bristol, join us as the ‘Northern Hemisphere Summer Scholarship’ students.
