Group PhD student Matthew Thornton has presented work at the Terra Rarae conference in Leipzig, Germany. His presentation reports on the synthesis and characterization of a novel multi-pocket molecule for lanthanide photophysics.
Matt Thornton, a BBSRC funded PhD affiliated with the group won a Poster Prize at the Molecular Photophysics meeting in Newcastle. Congratulations to Matt!
Matthew’s project on “Photon Upconversion Probes with Lanthanide Containing Biomolecules” includes rotations working in Chemistry, the Photon Science Institute and the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology.
