New members of the CEB Focus Editorial Team

Sina Schack

The CEB Focus Editorial Team welcomes new members Sina Schack and Gemma Siddall.

Sina has a background in Chemistry. She moved to Cambridge to start her training with the Sensor CDT in 2016. She is now in the first year of her PhD in the Molecular Microbiology group of Dr Graham Christie. Her interests are protein structure and functionality. In her project, she is looking at various crystal-forming proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis to produce spore-coat protein fusions for structural analyses. The resultant structural models will then be used to more rationally develop coat proteins, or spores, as components of novel sensor technologies. Sina joined CEB focus to explore an alternative career path by learning journalistic and scientific writing skills. She is looking forward to work in a dynamic team and to find out more about different research projects at CEB.

Gemma Siddall said, "Hello, I am a 1st year PhD student, within the MRRC research group, within the initial phase of research my first objective is to understand the surface chemistry of gamma-aluminas on catalytic behaviour with NMR characterisation methods developed within the research group. I was keen to join the CEB Focus team in order to gain insight into the wide range of research activities within the CEB and to improve my science communication skills. I hope you enjoy the issue! Thank you Elena Gonzalez and the team for welcoming Sina and I to the team."
