towerDr. Gwenin leaves Bangor

I have thoroughly enjoyed my 15 years in a full-time capacity working for Bangor, but I feel it is time for a change. This is not a decision I have taken lightly and is one I have come to after much deliberation.  I will always be grateful for the opportunities Bangor has provided throughout my career but it’s time to spread my wings.

We were delighted to attend the CALIN PhD/Post-Doc/Industry Forum, hosted by Prof. Frank Barry and the CALIN team at the National University Institute Galway. The presentations were held in the Biomedical Sciences department on Thursday 20th June 2019, following a wonderful social/networking event aboard the Corrib Princess the evening before. Dr Robert Hobbs presented a snapshot of the work we have been carrying out here for CALIN in the Applied Research in Chemistry and Health Group at Bangor University. The event also provided an opportunity to showcase our facilities and expertise in the field of biosensors and diagnostics and our thoughts on the latest innovation trends in the life science sector. A huge thanks to Siobhán and the rest of the NUIG team for a very well-organised event.

Congratulations to Simon and Vanessa on the publication of their new review

Joshua Davies and Dr Robert Hobbs presented a project overview and latest findings for the collaborative projects with Phytorigins. The presentation titled “The development of a biosensor for the detection of equine hindgut acidosis” was delivered at a workshop hosted by EquiBiome on behalf of their parent company Phytorigins. The collaborative work between the ARCH research group and Phytorigins is funded by both KESS2 and CALIN. Rob and Josh also took questions following the talk giving the attendees a further insight into the work and the support available through CALIN.
