The project aims to develop the first photosynthetic protocells capable of utilizing sunlight, water and CO2 to autonomously and continuously synthesize O2 and fuels at low costs.
Development of photosynthetic protocells for low-cost production of solar fuels.
The Gobbo Group welcomes four new group members! Patrick is a PhD student with a scholarship funded by EPSRC; Izzie is a TECS-CDT PhD student who is joining our group for a short rotation project; India and Leeya are 4th year UG students joining us for their final year thesis project.
The Gobbo Group welcomes Dr Agostino Galanti, who will be working on the programmed assembly of synthetic cells into protocellular materials.
Despite current global pandemic our students’ thirst for discovery keeps on growing. The Gobbo Group welcomes MRes student Ms Estela Bocarando Salcido and ESPRC Vacation Bursary awardee Ms Victoria Jiang.
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work in the Gobbo Group in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol. The position is for UK/EU student and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), with funding for 42 months. The starting date is October 2020, and the research aims to implement the first synthetic tissues with collective information-processing functions.
Due to the COVID-19 emergency the Gobbo Group Lab is now closed, but our research never stops.
Dr Pierangelo Gobbo, Vice Chancellor’s Fellow at the School of Chemistry of the University of Bristol, has won an EPSRC New Investigator Award worth £392k.
We are very please to welcome Mx Robert Arbon as our data scientist.
