Last night's MPLS Winter Party was a great success. Head of Division Alex Halliday outlined the achievements of the departments in the Research Excellence Framework assessment exercise.
Susannah Speller from Materials made a presentation about her research using superconductors, followed by Mike Bonsall from Zoology who outlined the highs and lows of mathematical biology using M&Ms as a prop! Eleanor Stride from Engineering Science provided us with an insight into her research work involving 'engineering bubbles' which deliver drugs to target areas of the body. The Vice Chancellor led a toast with Alex, congratulating everyone on achievements in the REF.
