Congratulations to PhD student Amy Solman who was successful in her funding application to the QMUL Postgraduate Research Fund to support her carrying out transcriptomics work in Lyon, France, in early 2022. Amy will spend several weeks in the lab of Catherine Larose at École Centrale de Lyon to extract and sequence RNA from her snow, ice and cryoconite samples collected in Svalbard earlier this year.
