Students benefit from lecture by Royal Society of Chemistry’s 2014 Joseph Black award winner

Prof. Shabaz

Students and staff at the University of South Wales were treated to a guest lecture by the winner of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s 2014 Joseph Black award – Prof. Shabaz Mohammed.

Prof. Shabaz is an Associate Professor of Proteomics at the University of Oxford and won the award for his seminal contributions to the teaching and practice of analytical chemistry and his inventive developments in chromatographic separations and proteomic characterisation.

Shabaz studied Chemistry at UMIST (now The University of Manchester) and obtained his degree in 1999.  He then went on to work in the laboratory of Simon Gaskell within the field of biological mass spectrometry albeit the more fundamental side of the topic and defended in early 2003. He is now a Senior Research Fellow in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry. He is also a theme leader at the Netherlands Proteomics Centre and maintains a 'guest' lecturer status at Utrecht University.

His talk was entitled "Delving into Proteomics (from a chemist’s point of view)". His audience included Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Science and Forensic Science students as well as teaching staff.

Natasha Galea, Senior Lecturer Chemistry & Pharmaceutical Sciences said: "This was a great opportunity for our students and a great experience for them to have such a widely acclaimed researcher visit them on campus."
