under the umbrella of the GRP Science and Technology for Health an exciting new network with the goal to develop new E-health applications for physical activity, sleep and circadian rhythms has been founded including more than a dozen labs from all over campus. Looking forward to come together and see what is already here.
Laura and Ewan have been selected to take part in the prestigous Oxford Summer School on Sleep and Circadian Clocks to learn all out our Rhythms and Homeostats.
Welcome to our new PhD student Maryam
We welcome Maryam in the lab. She has received the presigous Warwick Chancellor’s International Scholarship for her studies and wiil start her PhD project at the interface between novel nanomaterials and their use as drug delivery vehicles together with Prof. Sebastien Perrier (Chemistry) and us in October 2018.
Check out their posters!

New Incubator sponsored by Warwick Cancer Centre operational
Thanks to the generous donations of funds to the Warwick Cancer Centre, we were able to aquire a new CO2 mammalian cell culture incubator for culturing cells of the intestinal mucosa.
This will enable testing the characteristics of novel nanomaterials developed by our collaborators in the Perrier lab at Warwick Chemistry, which might transport drugs through these barriers and directly to the tumour tissue for better cancer treatments.
