biosensing and surf

10 November 2017

Cohort 3 researcher, Marcus Pollard, had the opportunity to develop some new skills during a recent bespoke training course. He explains more...

My trip was to attend a one-to-one training course which was supplied by Nanopore Solutions Ltd at ITQB-NOVA in Oeiras, Portgual. The aim of the training was to introduce myself to a modern method of nanopore fabrication, but also covered many other elements of nanopore experimentation such as equipment set-up, troubleshooting and data analysis. I hope to apply what I have learned to my work in the future. The highlight of the trip for me was the opportunity to network with James Yates, the Manager of Nanopore Solutions, which gave me further insight into the nanopore and biosensing industry. However, it wasn’t all work and no play, I managed to see Lisbon, sample the local delicacies and even tried a spot of surfing which is not as easy as it looks on TV.
