December 2018: BEE Workshop Registration Open
The 2nd Bio-Electrical Engineering (BEE) Workshop, focussing on 'Electrical Cell Biology', will take place 28-29 March 2019 at the University of Warwick. For more information and to register, please visit the Workshop webpage.
November 2018: Funded PhD studentship available
The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) are seeking applicants for the PhD project 'Electrochemistry - a shocking approach to enhanced global food security?' The project will be based at the University of Warwick and supervised by Professor Murray Grant, School of Life Sciences and Co-supervised by Professor Pat Unwin, Department of Chemistry.
This project applies multidisciplinary analytical approaches to understand how electrical and chemical signals collaborate to establish plant systemic immunity, also known as systemic acquired resistance (SAR). For more information and how to apply, please visit the project's webpage.
September 2018: Recruitment
The Soyer research group are looking for two motivated post-doctoral researchers to work on the Cancer Research UK funded project 'Electrical control of cancer metabolism'. We are looking for individuals with theoretical/experimental education in biology, chemistry, physics, or engineering, and relevant PhD experience. Skills in any, or all, of the following topics would be preferential: computational/biophysical modelling, bioelectrochemical system design and measurements, mammalian cell biology, and metabolic measurements. Please contact Orkun Soyer for details (O.Soyer@Warwick.ac.uk).
August 2018: Funding success
Orkun Soyer has received a Pioneer Award from Cancer Research UK to explore the electrical control of metabolism in cancerous cells. If successful, this research could lead to the development of new technologies for cancer treatment. The project will start later this year.
