Royal Setting for DISCO Film Production Part Two
June 20, 2017
Following on from the successful filming of interview statements with Professor Ralph Bock and his PhD student Shreya Agrawal at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology (MPI) in Potsdam (Germany) two weeks ago, the Eurice team visited the DISCO coordinator Professor Paul Fraser and his lab at Royal Holloway University of London (RHUL) on 13 June 2017 to conduct interviews with him and his group members.
Royal Holloway’s Founder’s Building as well as the newly built glasshouse and the laboratories of Professor Fraser allowed for a decent setting for the production of the DISCO film clips.
During his interview, Professor Fraser described the DISCO project in brief and explained its results and impact. Dr Genny Enfissi and Dr Marilise Nogueira, both working as Post Docs in Professor Fraser’s lab, summarised the work performed and the results achieved at RHUL within the 4-year collaborative FP7-project. After completing an internship with DISCO management partner Eurice last year, Dr Elliot Price explained in his interview how this cross-discipline exchange has supported his career as a scientist, while Rebecca Nohl, who performed training exchanges with industrial partners involved in DISCO, elaborated on how the opportunity to access DISCO helped and improved her activities as an early-stage researcher.
The RHUL and MPI interviews will be available soon.
