Last week it was time again for one of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Science’s Research Seminar. These lecture events were started last year and aim to provide a lecture accessible to undergraduates and other non-experts to raise awareness of current interdisciplinary research topics. If you want to check out my first post on these lectures check it out here.
This was the second seminar of the year and our Centre this time played host to Professor Mathias Brust from the University of Liverpool. Professor Brust is most well known for his contribution to the development of the Brust–Schiffrin method for the preparation of monolayer protected gold nanoparticles made in organic solutions. His research interests include aspects of metal nanoparticle chemistry, nanoelectronics and bionanotechnology but his current focus is on understanding interactions between metal nanoparticles and biological systems. His talk demonstrated yet another area of really important interdisciplinary research. The talk was especially useful for our ISci students as he talked over a lot of material that is found in one of our third year modules; Molecular Cell Biology and Nanoscience.
