We are excited to welcome Dr. Gordon Williamson as a new Post Doc who will work on the project “Single-Enzyme Biophysics of Membrane Proteins”.
Congratualtions to Dr Hope Adamson with her insightful review on applications of enzyme switches in biosensors and theĀ  importance of translational steps towards practical implementation, including integration into a user-friendly device.
So happy we are finally back into the labs as one of the first in Leeds. Several projects making a flying start. Thanks to everyone in our group who have been working hard to make this happen.
Many congratulations to Anna Stikane, who passed her PhD viva on 27 February. We wish her all the best in her new job at Teesside Univiersity.
Rosa and Riitta will work on a project “Exploiting membrane enzymes in biotechnology: Bioelectrocatalysis and fuel cells” in an exciting collaboration with Paul Beales, Ste Muench and Michael Rappolt from the University of Leeds, Prof. Nicolas Plumere from Bochum University and Prof. Oliver Lenz and Dr. Stephen Frielingsdorf from the Technical University Berlin.  
Many congratulations to our Debajyoti Dutta who has been offered (and accepted) a lectureship at the Thapar institute of engineering and technology. We are sad to see him leave, but wish him all the best with his independent career.
Funded by a BBSRC partnership grant, a collaboration with the University of Otago, New Zealand, led to an exciting new finding which was recently published in the J. Am. Chem. Soc.
