So, I'm Tom. I'm currently a second year Biochemistry student at Imperial. Did want to be a pilot in the RAF but my eyes let me down. But in a way I'm kinda glad because I'm really enjoying my subject, and very glad I did it (to think I once considered Psychology and Computer Science ;) ).

I've sold my soul to big business and am off to GSK @ Stevenage for a year paid placement.

On a brighter note I'll be working on either Antibody Engineering or Vaccine Engineering, or perhaps even both! But either way I'm gonna have '''loadsa money!!'''

So I'm currently in the Imperial iGEM team, after having heard about it and gotten incredibly excited. The team is set, the ideas are... flowing and we're gonna win! Does anyone know if there's any prize money for winning this competition? I think this should be investigated with the highest priority. I can then add it to my pile, and then maybe it'll be enough to buy a helicopter.

So I was in the Imperial iGEM 2006 team, designing and building a Biological Oscilator. It never got finished but we won second prize anyway. Obviously all those hours Jimmy spent on MatLab models was time well spent! Unfortunatley we didn't get any prize money, so I don't think I'll be able to afford a helicopter anytime soon.

So other than iGEM, I plan on trying to get fit this summer, although if the first week is anything to go by I don't think there'd be time. Which is a shame, because I really love exercise ;)

Also, I'll be policing the mean streets of Paddington Railway Station as a Special Constable with the British Transport Police. Basically that means I'm a  volunteer police officer with full police powers. So you better be good, or else your ass is going to jail.

After my placement with GSK has finished I've been offered a posistion as a visiting worker at Imperial to do some of my own research in the month I have off between end of placement and the start of my final year. Hopefully will get some good results!

Placement

I've sold my soul to big business and am working for GSK @ Stevenage for a year paid placement. I'm currently working on Antibody Technology projects as well as the odd Antibody Humanisation. Was offered a placement at Pfizer, in Sandwich, and am having some regrets that I didn't choose that one. Mainly as the area and facilites are all really really nice. Stevenage, on the other hand, is a pile.

iGEM 2006

So I was in the Imperial iGEM 2006 team, designing and building a Biological Oscilator. It never got finished but we won second prize anyway. Obviously all those hours Jimmy spent on MatLab models was time well spent! Unfortunatley we didn't get any prize money, so I don't think I'll be able to afford a helicopter anytime soon.



Upcomming Projects

After my placement with GSK has finished I've been offered a posistion as a visiting worker at Imperial to do some of my own research in the month I have off between end of placement and the start of my final year. Hopefully will get some good results!
