Olivia Gittins, CDT Doctoral Researcher (Cohort 1):
“I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to visit Diamond Light Source to assist with crystallographic data collection on the I03 beamline. Chatting to beamline scientists about their work and going on a tour of the facility gave me an appreciation of the vast range of scientific disciplines that benefit from collaborations with Diamond. I can’t wait to hopefully visit again soon to learn more about their Electron Bio-Imaging Centre!”
Ruth Walker, CDT Doctoral Researcher (Cohort 1):
"Having Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) as an industrial partner is an invaluable opportunity. I am enjoying collaborating on my PhD project with Dr Frank H. Büttner (BI) and I am really looking forward to undertaking my year's placement at BI. It will be an excellent chance to develop on many levels, with both my research skills in an industrial setting as well as personally through working in Germany, experiencing a different culture and expanding my knowledge.”
