Speakers: Katie Griffiths, PhD student (Diagnostics), Richard Speight, MD student (Transplantation) and Victoria Whittle, MD student (Musculoskeletal)
Date and time: Wednesday 27 November 2013 at 1.00pm
Katie Griffiths will present:
"Laser Scribed Graphene as an electrode for sensing."
Light scribe technology has been used as a simple and inexpensive solution for manufacturing graphene electrodes for use in electrochemistry with the aim of developing novel biosensors.
Key words: Graphene, biosensors, electrochemistry
Richard Speight will discuss:
'Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Is it all about bile in the small bowel?'
Recent evidence demonstrates that bile acids are more than mere detergent molecules with
evidence that they have an immune regulatory role. My MD is attempting to unravel how bile acid dysmetabolism may be implicated in IBD.
Key words: bile acids, IBD, FXR
Victoria Whittle will talk about:
Exploring the impact of an Acute Care, High-fidelity Simulation teaching programme
delivered to final year medical undergraduates.
Keywords: Medical education, Simulation, Acute Care
Chair: Catriona Barker, PhD student (Transplantation)
