Congratulations Prachi and Mike

20th September, 2011

Well Done to Prachi and Mike for their successful grant applications to the Oral and Dental Research Trust for a combined total of £10,000 to provide consumables funding for their respective projects.



Prachi will be using her grant to fund a collaborative project with Professor Phil Wright and Dr Khoa Pham in the Dept of Chemical and Biological Engineering aimed at examining global changes in phosphorylation cascades in oral cells in reponse to periodontal pathogens.  This is a very exciting area of work which we hope will bring some nice data.

Mike's grant will fund his work on the search for bacteriophage targetted against periodontal pathogens using human sailva samples as a source of material.

Well done to both.
