PhD studentship available with Prof Willoughby

Profs Colin Willoughby, George Bou Gharios and myself have an exciting PhD project supported by Fight For Sight open to applications now. The project will aim to dissect the molecular mechanisms behind the build up of introcular pressure in glaucoma and will determine if a new treatment option can be developed that would halt progression of the disease. It’s an excellent project in which there is real opportunity for significant advances and where the student pursuing it will develop skills in cutting edge techniques. The project is based in Liverpool in the brand new Apex building (see my other posts for pics)

Description of project on FFS website is here.

End of radiotherapy

My wife’s radiotherapy sessions ended last week, so we celebrated with a short trip to Amsterdam. Here is us immediately after eating some frozen yogurt (one of the things we both miss from the the US)

I put together a few pics in adobe slate – the pic link below is really just to test if blog posts in that format  will work on this platform. If the image doesn’t load, try this link instead
