Congratulations to Ying Tu who passed his PhD viva on Wednesday 24th October 2018. Ying did his PhD on the "Investigation of ZnO nanorods as chemical and biological sensors" under the supervision of Steffi Krause and Joe Briscoe. [more]
Ying's paper on Light-Addressable Potentiometric Sensors (LAPS) using ZnO Nanorods as the Sensor Substrate for Bioanalytical Applications has been accepted by Analytical Chemistry. In this work, for the first time, a 1D material - ZnO nanorods with a high aspect ratio - was developed as a new substrate material for ... [more]
Steffi Krause gave an invited talk on "Light-addressable potentiometric sensors for cell imaging applications" at the 4th Conference on Impedance-Based Cellular Assays, which was held in Edinburgh from 6th to 8th June 2018 (http://www.ibca2018.net/). [more]
Queen Mary awarded funding to build instrument which will revolutionise monitoring of cellular processes29 May 2018
Queen Mary University of London has been awarded funding to lead a joint project to build an instrument which will revolutionise the monitoring of cellular processes in tissues that line organs. The grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has a total value of £823,329 over three years, ... [more]
Dewen's paper on photoelectrochemical imaging with carbon dots has been accepted by Materials Horizons. This work started a new collaboration of our group with the research groups of Magda Titirici, Oliver Fenwick and Andrei Sapelkin. Here are the details of the publication: De-Wen Zhang, Nikolaos Papaioannou, Naomi Michelle David, Hui ... [more]
Congratulations to Fan Wu for successfully defending her PhD thesis “Investigation of light-addressable potentiometric sensors for electrochemical imaging based on different semiconductor substrates”. Fan was supervised by Steffi Krause and Michael Watkinson. [more]
Steffi Krause, Pihua Wen & Guang Li are the latest three staff in SEMS to have completed the ADEPT application. This means that all three have also now been awarded their Fellowships of the Higher Education Academy and can now use the designation FHEA after their names. Congratulations to all three ... [more]
