Gayle Price, the department's Scientific Glassblower, is currently collaborating with Gillian McFarland and Ruth Singer as part of a project, funded by Arts Council England, to explore the work of researchers in genetics labs including archaeological DNA, plant and yeast genetics.

As part of the project Gayle rehomed surplus glassware from Chemistry stores and made it into art. The collaboration was featured on BBC Radio 4 Inside Science on 11th May 2017 (link here). With Gillian and Ruth Gayle is developing work to be exhibited from September to December 2017.
