June: The CMR hosts the 1st virtual conference with research talk by Josh and flash talks by Antoine, Katrin, Laura, Maria and Niti. Well done everyone!
A paper with the Pliotas group studying functional differences of homologous mechanosensitive channels by EPR is accepted by Biophys. J.
Maria submits her thesis amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
May: The virus is still dominating daily life with the lockdown still in place in Scotland, but it seems there is some light at the end of the tunnel and planning is going ahead for restarting research. Some good news as well: A paper from the Wright group with some EPR contribution has been accepted by Angewandte.
April: The lockdown because of the COVID-19 crisis continues throughout April. Everyone tries to keep sane in the "new normal".
March: The corona pandemic hits and Scotland goes into lockdown. All our lab-based research is put on hold and we continue working from home keeping in touch with virtual meetings and Zoominars. Viktorija's project work has to end. Many thanks for your efforts.
February: In a strong finish to February our alumna Dr Angeliki Giannoulis visits St Andrews for plenty of EPR experiments.
Some more of our alumna Dr Sonia Chabbra's EPR work with the Watson Group is accepted by Angewandte Chemie.
January: Happy New Year!
Applications are still open for a St Andrews Global PhD Scholarship "Developing Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy for Studying Biomolecular Structures and Dynamics under Native Conditions" offered in collaboration with Prof. Olav Schiemann at the University of Bonn.
