Goodbye party for Dr Anupam Das

15 November 2018

This party felt like the end of an era. We celebrated the departure of  Dr Anupam Das from our research group with a great dinner party at Chamas, Beverley.  Anupam has been a member of Paunov’s research group for almost 7 years, first 3 years as a PhD student and then doing two post-docs, funded by an industrial sponsor and CRUK over the last 4 years. He did a lot of work on biomaterials, capillary suspension formulations, as well as bioimprinting of cancer cells. We were also joined by Dr Horozov and PhD students from his and prof Binks’s research groups who have known Anupam for many years.

As usual, thanks to Osama for the great photos.
