I am delighted that Diya’s final paper has now been accepted! Diya went back to Jordan after finishing his PhD in the group and now runs his own lab at the Royal Scientific Society. He secured funding to finish a very interesting project using the halophilic HvADH2 from H. volcanii to prepare a large range of aromatic alcohols in excellent conversion and optical purity.

This paper is also research paper number 60 if we don’t count reviews and patents. Let’s celebrate!
