They grow up so fast – JohnJohn’s 1st year talk

Today JohnJohn Knox had his end of 1st year of PhD talk (upgrade seminar). JohnJohnJohn is working on trying to develop a new molecular therapeutic for glaucoma on a project sponsored by UK charity Fight for Sight. He has three supervisors; Colin Willoughby, George Bou Gharios and myself and while Colin is the real driver behind this project (it is his grand plan), George and I contribute our expertise to guidance. and are likely to take a bigger role as he enters the next phase of his project.

JohnJohnJohnJohn did really well in his talk, presenting to a packed seminar room with most of the faculty from IACD in attendance. He did particularly well in dealing with some tricky questions in a really confident and effective way. He got some nice comments and suggestions for future work too so should be off designing new experiments as I write this!

There is some cool stuff coming here so expect more news about JohnJohnJohnJohnJohn’s progress in the near future.
