Posted on 09 July 2012
Stuart Jenkins, a final year PhD student in Dr Divya Chari's laboratory at the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, won a British Neuroscience Association (BNA) abstract competition and was invited to give an oral presentation at the Bioengineering and Neuronal Remodelling meeting held in Manchester this week.
Stuart's was the only abstract chosen for presentation, alongside nine invited national and international speakers, who discussed a range of issues related to regeneration in the nervous system.
He presented his recent work on the applications of magnetic nanoparticles in OPC transplantation strategies.
This included the use of a novel 'multimodal' particle tested in collaboration with materials chemist, Professor Matthew Rosseinsky at the University of Liverpool.
