Summer Students 2011

Two Keele 2nd year undergraduate students are joining us for 8 weeks.

Ben has a Nuffield Undergraduate Summer Research Bursary for a project called: “Snowflakes and Honeycombs: Dendrimer-zeolite hybrid materials to remove nitrate and phosphate anions from water.” and will be looking at ways to functionalise dendrimer branches for anion binding.

James has a Wellcome Trust Biomedical Vacation Scholarship for a project called: “Silver bullets for bugs – how hybrid materials can improve antimicrobial wound dressings.” and will be looking at ways to combine poly(acrylic acid) and zeolites for silver binding.
