It’s a busy start to the academic year for the Lancs Photosynthesis and Lancs Plant Engineering teams, with 4 new PhD students starting this week!

Connor starts with us looking at inhibition of Rubisco with Elizabete and Doug as part of the RIPE project.

Julia is joining Doug’s group as part of the North West Bio DTP to work on microcompartment engineering (jointly with Strathclyde).

Haixia joins as a China Scholarship Council funded student working with Sam and Elizabete on photosynthesis under heat and drought.

And Alvaro will be working on building carboxysomes in plants with Doug and Marj on a LEC scholarship.

Welcome everyone to the PhD journey!

As the new arrivals settle in we’ll share more info on the exciting work they’re doing.
