Bacteria are particularly ingenious when it comes to
survival strategies. They often create a biofilm to protect themselves
hostile environment, for example during treatment with antibiotics, and
scientists have unravelled the secrets of how they do this with a new 3D
The Chemistry department's Green Impact team "All the good names Argon" has won the Platinum award at this year's Green Impact Awards on Tuesday (10th
June 2014). This is thanks to the hard work of the all members
of the Green Impact Team! We want to encourage more people in the
department to become more sustainable, especially starting this

Dr Luis Gomez-Hortiguela has received the Barrer Award for his outstanding predictive computational studies of templating and reactivity of microporous materials. More...
Professor Stephen Price received last week in the University Centre Obergurgl in Tyrol the SASP Erwin Schrödinger Medal. This award for outstanding research activities was passed as part of the "XIXth Symposium on Atomic, Cluster and Surface Physics (SASP)" by Prof. Roland Wester. More...
Research by Professor Peter Coveney on how the use of computational biomedicine could be used to deliver personalised medicine, reported at the 2014 American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) meeting in the Virtual Humans: Helping Faciliate Breakthroughs in Medicine sub-symposium (an audio file of the symposium is available for purchase on the AAAS website) and featured in the Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation, has been highlighted on the BBC Science and Environment News website.
The energy needed to change the magnetic orientation of a single atom – which determines its magnetic stability and therefore its usefulness in a variety of future device applications – can be modified by varying the atom’s electrical coupling to nearby metals. More...
