Membranes and More

I am just embarking on a new project, a commission to make an artwork for the Clinical Research Facility at St James University Hospital in Leeds. The piece is to be inspired by the EPSRC funded research of the Beales Research Group at Leeds University about membrane disrupting peptides and potential new cancer treatments.

You can read a quick summary of what the research is about here (the EPSRC info) or here (a short BBC News story from the inception of the research).

Tomorrow I head to Leeds to begin absorbing information, environment and ideas from the research group – three days of intense immersion in their world.  I can’t wait!
