Congratulations to final year PhD student Yousilliya Bunga for winning a first poster prize at Electrochem 2017 held in Birmingham University. The prize was awarded by SCI (Society for Chemical Industry) for her poster, entitled ‘Interactions of thiolated gold nanoparticles with lipid membranes’, based on her PhD work with Dr Ritu Kataky. Her research is on the effects of size, charge and chemical modifications of metallic nanoparticles on their interactions with lipid membranes. The implications of the work, was judged by SCI, to have widespread applications in toxicology, anti-bacterial and drug delivery applications.
