Dawson, Walker, and SpainLecturers Dr Rob Dawson and Dr Seb Spain, and Thomas group postdoctoral researcher Dr Mike Walker, recently presented at the Newton-Bhabha Researcher Links Workshop on Advanced Nanomaterials for Energy, Healthcare and Sustainability held at the Indian Institute of Technology Mandi.

This meeting aimed to develop new research collaborations between UK and India researchers to tackle global challenges such as meeting our increasing demand for energy while reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, and the development of cheap, effective therapeutics and diagnostics for diseases including cancer and diabetes.

Of the meeting Dr Spain said "This was a really excellent meeting with high quality research and discussion throughout. Personally, I expect to form several new research partnerships as a direct result. Additionally, our hosts at IIT Mandi were exceptionally welcoming."
