Massive congrats to
Kieran Murphy who has just been accepted into the PhD program at the University of Tasmania - he'll be studying and modelling cephalopod range and diet shifts in response to climate change at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. Very cool!
|This one has been a long time coming from our collaborative efforts as part of the Centre for Biofouling Research. Led by Nat Filip (MSc) and Amanda Pustam (post-doc), plus also help from Veronica Ells, Katy Grosicki, and also several other students over in chemistry with Truis-Smith Palmer, we show how a siloxane-based coating can be both fouling-release (i.e. fouling animals don't stick to it easily) and also leach a toxin that particularly seems to target the invasive tunicate Ciona intestinalis.

Another report from the Centre for Biofouling Research, based on work in Truis Smith-Palmer's lab, looking at biofilm formation during flow. Published in Applied Spectroscopy.
