National Student Survey 2019 15 July 2019 Our graduating Chemistry students of 2019 have sent out a ringing endorsement of their courses in the latest National Student Survey (NSS), released recently.
- Could synthetic molecules provide a general treatment for Cystic Fibrosis? 14 November 2019 A new treatment for lung disease in cystic fibrosis (CF) for which there remains no cure could potentially benefit all patients, according to a University of Bristol study published in Chemical Science. The findings are an important step towards a new therapy addressing the fundamental cause of cystic fibrosis.
- University of Bristol wins significant funding for three new National Nuclear User Facilities 8 November 2019 The University of Bristol has been awarded around £10 million funding for three National Nuclear User Facility bids covering robotics, microscopy and materials research.
- University of Bristol spin-out raises £760,000 to commercialise biosensing technology 31 October 2019 Rosa Biotech, a new University of Bristol spin-out which developed a sensing platform capable of detecting the faint chemical signature given off by chronic diseases has raised £760,000 to commercialise its ground-breaking innovation. The artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven biosensing technology, which mimics mammals’ sense of smell, has significant potential to transform the medical diagnostics and pharmaceuticals industries.
- Inspirational Bristol Scientists Board Unveiled 10 October 2019 Lara Lalemi organised the ‘Inspirational Bristol Scientists’ event as part of Black History Month. It was designed to showcase the brilliant contributions that BAME students in science and engineering make to the university and to the wider community.
- First evidence for early baby bottles used to feed animal milk to prehistoric babies 26 September 2019 A team of Scientists led by the School of Chemistry's Organic Geochemistry Unit, has found the first evidence that prehistoric babies were fed animal milk using the equivalent of modern-day baby bottles.
- Advanced Chemistry Summer School for students from Jilin University in China 28 August 2019 The School of Chemistry has welcomed staff and students from Jilin University (JLU) in China as part of a long-standing relationship between the two institutions.
- Supercapacitors turbocharged by laxatives 16 August 2019 An international team of scientists, including Professor Julian Eastoe from the School of Chemistry, has worked out a way to improve energy storage devices called supercapacitors, by designing a new class of detergents chemically related to laxatives.
- Bristol School of Chemistry celebrates fantastic independent research fellows 30 July 2019 At Bristol, we’re proud to be able to host a number of externally-funded independent research fellows in the School of Chemistry.
- Shape shifting protocells hint at the mechanics of early life 29 July 2019 Inspired by the processes of cellular differentiation observed in developmental biology, an interdisciplinary team of researchers in the School of Chemistry have demonstrated a new spontaneous approach to building communities of cell-like entities (protocells) using chemical gradients.
- Prestigious Royal Society honour for Bristol Chemist 18 July 2019 Professor Varinder Aggarwal from the School of Chemistry has been awarded the prestigious Davy Medal from the Royal Society for his outstanding contribution to the field of chemistry
