Congratulations Dr Birar

Congratulations from all of the chemistry division to Dr Vishal Birar who successfully defended his PhD in a 4 hour viva today. The thesis entitled “Does SIRT1 or cytostasis underlie the anti-ageing activity of trans-stilbenes?” is the culmination of three years hard work and was examined by Professor Mark Bagley of the University of Sussex and Dr Allison Lansley of the University of Brighton.
