Sariah Khormaee presented a poster entitled Delivery of Stathmin specific siRNA to the brain, Krishnaa Mahbubani's poster was Viability and proliferation of cells after cryopreservation, Rongjun Chen Design and in-vitro testing of pH-responsive biopolymers for drug delivery, Yu Chen (supervisor Prof Howard Chase) presented Reduction of sludge formation in activated sludge process and Kate Miller Processing of affinity tagged nanoparticles.

The head of the group, Professor Nigel Slater said, "On this occasion we didn't win any prizes (it would have been very difficult to have done so since it is only a few weeks since the same judge chose Kate Miller's poster for an all expenses paid trip to Singapore!) BUT I was very, very pleased indeed with the high standard of professionalism that every one of them displayed - they were all a great credit to the department and CUBE."
