Xiang`s farewell

Xiang finished her MSci degree succesfully and stayed around for another few months as a research assistant but now it is time to move on. Best of luck in the future and we hope to see you again!

MSci student Jess Newport

It is a pleasure to welcome Jess Newport as student in the lab. Jess is currently enrolled in the Integrated Masters (Msci) in Biological and Biomedical Sciences at University of Dundee and will be spending 5 months in the lab to study the role of TET2 in the hematological malignancy Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm.

Street Food 2019

Thanks to the organizers for making us part of the Street Food public outreach event at Dundee Science Festival 2019 . 

This event combines food and drink makers, from Dundee, Angus, Fife and beyond, with University of Dundee researchers to explore the surprising, inspiring ways that research meets food.

We were involved in a stand where DNA extraction from strawberries (with gin!!!) provided an opportunity to discuss our research with the general public. Great fun!!!
