In competition with UCL, Imperial College, Oxford, Nottingham, Warwick and Cambridge Universities, Marie Pettit and Susan Shorter accepted joint first prize for the best student poster at the ISIS Neutron and Muon User Meeting (8th & 9th April 2013) held at the University of Warwick. The poster described work developing a novel oral delivery system at the interface of cell biology, synthetic biology, immunology, formulation science and particle physics (neutron scattering). Naturally this endeavor has brought together several academics from the Faculty of Science and Engineering including: The Richardson Research Group (Dr Simon Richardson, Paul Dyer, Susan Shorter, Marie Pettit), Prof John Mitchell, Prof Peter Griffiths and Dr Bruce Alexander. This work is shortly to be submitted for publication. The poster was entitled; SANS Analysis Of An Oral Antigen Delivery System and was authored by: Marie W. Pettit, Paul D.R. Dyer, John C. Mitchell, Peter C. Griffiths, Bruce Alexander, Susan A. Shorter, Richard K. Heenan†, Ralf Schweins§ and Simon C.W. Richardson*. This work is the result of collaboration between the School of Science, ISIS† and the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) §.
