Paper from Heba’s work is published in JCIS open

Another paper by former PhD student Heba Elkateb is out now. Her research on high drug loading lipid-based nanoparticles in JCIS Open showcases the use of a nanoprecipitation method to produce SLNs, NLCs, and nanoemulsions with high drug loadings. Access the paper here.

George completes his MPhil

Congratulation to George, who today passed his MPhil viva with minor corrections on his thesis titled “Formulating Polypropylene to Establish Structure-Property-Performance Relationships in Recycled Material for Packaging Applications”. Well done George!

George completed his thesis while working in his new career as a Data Analyst, we thank him for all his hard work and wish him all the best in the future.

Many thanks to Haifei Zhang and Lee Fielding for their time spent assessing George’s work.

The group moves to the University of Manchester at the Henry Royce Institute Hub Building

As of April 2023, Tom has joined the University of Manchester and is based at the Henry Royce Institute Hub Building. Tom has a joint role as a Reader in both the Materials and Chemistry Departments.

This move strengthens the group’s activities in Sustainable Materials, through co-location in the Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub and close collaboration with Manchester academics. Tom will remain an Honorary member of staff at the University of Liverpool and will continue to work closely with his collaborators and colleagues at Liverpool.

The Henry Royce Institute Hub Building provides an exceptional environment for our research group. Its state-of-the-art facilities and collaborative atmosphere will foster new opportunities and interdisciplinary collaborations.
