Dr Lowe's group well represented at high profile conferences

Vicki Emms, a final year PhD student, was one of only 35 PhDs and postdocs selected to present at the prestigious Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson Dalton Poster Symposium at The Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House. Vicki presented her work on utilising the polyamine transport system to deliver transition metal cancer theranostics, to peers and senior representatives from industry and academia.

Vicki paid another visit to London in March. Along with fellow group members Adhitiyawarman, Adil Ali and Sarab Salih, they presented posters on their work at The Royal Society, Carlton House Terrace. The discussion meeting focussed on “Challenges for chemistry in molecular imaging”. Between them, they presented work on dual mode magnetic resonance/optical imaging agents; probing the polyamine transport system for cancer cell selective delivery; metal complexes as dyes for imaging synaptic vesicles; zinc responsive MRI contrast agents.

Nada Alatawi also joined in with the conference season, attending another Royal Society of Chemistry event in Manchester. She presented a poster of her work on luminescent Pt(II) Complexes for Cellular Imaging, at the International Symposium on Advancing the Chemical Sciences: Challenges in Inorganic Chemistry.
