Research scientists / postdoctoral researchers:
Simon came to Bangor in 2012 to undertake a B.Sc. degree in chemistry. For his third year project he worked as part of an organic chemistry research group on the synthesis of a new poly-fluorene molecule, designed to be used as a substrate in an OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode). Now he is writing up his Ph.D. in the field of cancer therapy funded by a Knowledge Exploitation Skills Scholarship whilst partaking in the first IgorIP secondment with Swansea University in the area of botulinum detection.
