BCHC PhD student successfully defends thesis

The BCHC is delighted to announce that on the 16th January, PhD student John Tomes successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled ‘Imaging Ellipsometry as a Novel Detection Method for Protein-Protein Interactions’. John’s PhD was co-supervised by Dr Russ Morphew (IBERS) and Dr Dave Langstaff (Physics) and was focused on investigating whether image ellipsometry could be used as a potential high speed, non-contact, label free, diagnostic technique for the identification of liver fluke infection.

John was examined by Dr Hugh Mortimer from the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Dr Gordon Alison an analytical chemist within IBERS, Dr John Scullion acted as chair.

Huge congratulations John!
