Farewell Chagas Disease

7 December 2017

Congratulations to third year Hertford biochemist Jei Diwakar, who was part of an Oxford group project competing at the international synthetic biology competition iGEM in Boston this November. Team Oxford won the Best Diagnostic Project and nominations in five other categories for their design of a cheap and reliable diagnostic for Chagas disease. We're very proud that Jei's work on the project was partially supported by a Hertford Summer Studentship.
