Innovating research, policy and education in synthetic and systems biology

Congratulations in order

Congratulations to Scott Neilson, our Genome Foundry lab technician, who graduated from Fife College with top marks for his HND in Applied Biological Sciences.

Scott started with the Centre in July 2015 as a Modern Apprentice (Life Sciences Lab Technician) in our mass spectrometry facility (now Edinomics). After he qualified, he joined the Edinburgh Genome Foundry, one of Edinburgh’s most high profile Research Facilities, and is now an invaluable member of the team. Scott enjoys keeping the robots in good working order and assembling DNA for customers.

The Centre is proud to be part of the Modern Apprentice scheme and would like to thank Fife College (especially Yvonne Bayne) and Scott’s mentor at the University, Mrs Eliane Salvo-Chirnside, for their support of Scott over the years.
