Biochemistry in Action: Dr Nisbet Talks Corals and Malaria

By on Feb 25, 2019 in Blog |

Dr Ellen Nisbet has travelled down from Downing College at the University of Cambridge to deliver an academic lecture on her area of research; Biochemistry.

Dr Nisbet explored the biochemistry of the oceans with our students, including the impact of changes in the ocean chemistry on fragile ecosystems such as coral reefs. The students were captivated as she explained how her research has taken her around the world to investigate these precious environments first hand.

Dr Nisbet also explored the role that Biochemistry can play in understanding and combating the spread of malaria and answered questions from the audience about how to get into a career in and biochemical research.

We would like to extend a sincere thanks to Dr Nisbet for taking the time to visit us here at Nexus – our students gained a lot out of her visit and we are very grateful for her time.
