UCL researcher wins Aminoff Prize

Professor Ian Robinson of the LCN has been awarded the 2015 Gregori Aminoff Prize in Crystallography. More...

3D model shows survival strategies of bacteria

Bacteria are particularly ingenious when it comes to survival strategies. They often create a biofilm to protect themselves from a hostile environment, for example during treatment with antibiotics, and scientists have unravelled the secrets of how they do this with a new 3D model.  More...

Project to support state school students to study STEM at university celebrates biggest year yet

108 school students from low income backgrounds have been given a step up towards studying STEM subjects at university, thanks to in2ScienceUK, a project founded by UCL PhD student Rebecca McKelvey and marked this week at a celebration evening at UCL for students and scientist mentors.

UCL awarded research funds for electric vehicle technologies

Scientists at UCL are part of a consortium awarded a multi-million pound grant to develop electric vehicle technologies. The ELEVATE (electrochemical vehicle advanced technology) project, led at UCL by Dan Brett and Paul Shearing (UCL Chemical Engineering), along with Prof Jawwad Darr (UCL Chemistry) and colleagues at Loughborough, Warwick, Southampton and Oxford universities. The group in UCL Chemistry will be supporting the work to develop new high capacity and high performance anode and cathode Li ion battery materials using its pilot plant nanoparticle synthesis facility (pictured above).

Sloths: life in the evolutionary fast lane

Today’s sloths might be known as slow, small animals, but their ancestors developed large body sizes at an amazing rate, according to an evolutionary reconstruction published today in BMC Evolutionary Biology. The fast rate of change suggests that factors such as environmental conditions, or competition with other species must have strongly favoured the bigger sloths, before they died out. More...
