Enzyme Responsive Surfaces and Control of Neural Stem Cell Differention: Zelzer Group Presentations

Hala and Anne attended and presented their work at the 4th Postgraduate Symposium on Nanotechnology on the 15th December. The one day meeting was sponsored by the RSC Materials Chemistry Division and hosted at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.

Postgraduates and Post Docs from Universities across the UK came together to share their exciting research with each other on topics ranging from carbon nanotubes for intracellular sensing to nanoparticles for cancer therapies.

Hala presented a poster of her work on designing surfaces that control neural stem cell differentiation and Anne delivered a flash presentation on designing an enzyme responsive surface.

The honorary guest speakers Dr Matthew I. Gibson (University of Warwick), Dr David Adams (University of Liverpool) and Dr Adam Perriman (university of Bristol) offered their experience and practices in their stimulating plenary talks. Lunchtime and evening poster sessions enabled the early researchers to discuss their work with one another over a beer or two.
