University of St Andrews

Festive Work Experience

Friday 20 December 2013

This week, European researchers have been gathering at the University of St Andrews for the start of a new experiment (Swedish Research Council Contemporary project) at the Gatty Marine Laboratory, which is being co-ordinated by Dr Bill Austin.

Among the team was Kirsty Black (High School of Dundee), who has been assisting with laboratory analyses; the photograph (courtesy of Dr Helena Filipsson) shows Kirsty (in festive mood) and Bill preparing marine algae for the experiments, which will run until next summer in state-of-the-art NERC-funded facilities.
