Nanomedicine Lab bakes for Pancreatic Cancer UK!
Some Nanomedicine Lab members contributed in the bake sale fundraiser organised on the 4th March by our lovely colleague from the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences, Eliza Fotiou, for Pancreatic Cancer UK. We are so proud to be a tiny part of this huge effort!
Livia presents at the National Graphene Institute
March debuted with Livia Crica presenting her latest research at the National Graphene Institute within the weekly Friday seminar. She focused on the in vivo interaction of graphene oxide sheets with biological fluids, her results raised both smiles and numerous questions amongst the graphene science audience, particularly Professor Geim!
