The Y chromosomes of the Griffin line were working in overdrive in recent weeks, with both Professor Griffin’s sons scoring their first academic publications.
Alex Griffin (19), currently a student of Design Engineering at the University of Sussex assisted in a study entitled "Measurement of the neutral axis in avian eggshells reveals which species conform to the golden ratio” led by colleagues Val Narushin and Mike Romanov. He recently completed a work-placement in the lab of Dr Viktorija Makarovaite in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts.
Guy Griffin (17) a current sixth former at the Simon Langton School recently competed his second summer placement in the lab of Dr SImon Moore and co-authored an article entitled "A curcumin direct protein (DiPro) biosensor for cell-free prototyping”. He was recently the recipient of an Eric Reid summer scholarship and hopes to study Biochemistry at University.
