Congratulations to our PhD student Arturo Jose Mendoza Meinhardt, who has won the prize for the best poster given at the 2017 Autumn Industrial Liaison Forum of the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London on November 12th, for his poster titled ‘Peptide Amphiphiles as a Platform for the Manipulation of Protein Conformation’.
There are two Industrial Liaison Forums scheduled for staff and students in the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) and the Materials Research Institute (MRI) during each academic year.
This particular forum focused on building new opportunities to develop research collaborations within SEMS and the MRI. The aim being to help companies by increasing the amount of collaborative industrially focused work that SEMS undertakes. Following on from the success of the previous event, SEMS decided to make the day even more attractive for external participants and alumni to attend as it was planned for the afternoon to be devoted to an employers’ forum coordinated by the careers unit. This forum was a way for current students to network and find out about guest organisations.
The organisations that registered their interest in participating include:
AEM / Namtec; Alcoa; BAA; CERAM; Cranfield; Cushman & Wakefield; E6; EADS Astrium Ltd; Engineers without Borders; Ford; IHEEM; IHS Automotive; IoM3; John Fyson; Manchester University; Matchtech Group Plc; Mirelplastics; Mott MacDonald; Nomura; Plasticell; Restoration of Appearance & Function Trust (RAFT); Selex Galileo; Siemens; TARRC; Tata Steel; Teach First; TFL.
