Meet The Team!
Andrew is an aspiring medical student, with strong links in community volunteering. When he isn't busy leading St Johns Ambulance teams he works in the wet lab, sequencing every successful PCR, or setting them up. Alongside this he put his years of training cadets to use in presenting our project in Westminster and in Boston.
In charge of the FUEL side project, Rob designed the primers and assisted in the biobrick design that he would be working with. He also planned FLIM experiments with Oxford for collab. When he wasn't working on these he was: procuring and experimenting with Vibrio harveyi for outreach, 3D designing/printing, helping out in the lab/outreach, and reaffirming his inability to web design.
Nic the resident Cypriot was a core part of the wet lab team. Reliably set his hands to anything asked of him, Nick was a true workhorse.
With the project he worked on the bigger picture, working in the wet lab and ensuring time efficient work schedules, as well as presenting our project in Paris and Boston. A proven leader and proven light weight.
As the only core Biology student, Laura was involved in the wet lab practical work and our artistic efforts, designing our logo as well as our initial project posters.
As a chemist on a GMO project, Chris developed himself outside his field, gaining skills in practical microbiology and computer science through his work in wet lab and leading the wiki content and design. He also ventured outside some days, presenting the project in Paris and Westminster, as well as designing and presenting our poster in Boston.
Coordinated Human Practices. Organised all outreach events, consulted experts, and undertook the STI self testing kit investigation. In the lab, she was sometimes found cloning, and mostly lurking in dark rooms, testing her cultures for light. Initially organised collab with Oxford and WashU. Presented in Boston.
