On Friday 30th September the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln hosted our first ever PGR symposium event. We invited alumni who are currently PGR students at other institutions to give a short (10-15 minute) presentation about their research projects alongside some of our own PhD students.
The third speaker was Sorcha Hulme who is currently in her final year studying for a PhD in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at the University of Liverpool. Her research is on the use of nanomaterials in sensing applications.
In her talk, Sorcha started quite generally by talking about the various kinds of nanomaterials and their wide-ranging applications. She then proceeded to focus on her own area of interest – the functionalisation of nanoparticles with specific aptamers that bind to ‘marker’ molecules associated with the diagnosis of cancers. She finished by mentioning the role of non-uniformity in applications of nanomaterials.
