Well done to Gary Bradshaw, who passed his viva voce exam this week! Gary successfully defended his thesis, and is the first of the UCD McGarrigle group to reach this milestone. Gary’s external examiner Prof Bruce Turnbull gave a seminar following the viva. Then there was a celebration into the wee small hours.
We welcome Kevin Agnew to the group. Kevin is a undergraduate summer intern getting some research experience. He is a going into his final year in Trinity College Dublin next September. Kevin will be working on some carbohydrate chemistry while he is in the group.
