Dr Richard Hopkinson

Today we host Dr Richard Hopkinson of the Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology and the Department of Chemistry of the University of Leicester for a New Zealand Institute of Chemistry (Auckland branch) seminar. Dr Hopkinson talked about his work on the biosynthesis, metabolism and toxicity of formaldehyde. Ivan and Richard did their DPhil together at the laboratory of Professor Chris Schofield FRS in Oxford so it was great to have a reunion here in Auckland.
