IC Current has the story for our recent graduate! As stated, "she credits IC’s biology and chemistry departments with giving her both the hands-on practice and classroom knowledge to be successful in the workplace."
Andy Smith was interviewed by BBC radio about his research (and glues and slimes in general). The episode is available for download. The interview was part of an episode for their CrowdScience program called "What is the point of slime?". In the interview, Andy talks about the molecular structure of slime and how it gives rise to unusual properties. In particular, some slimes are remarkably sticky, and extraordinarily difficult to wash off. The discussion of slime's structure is followed by other interviews focusing on the diversity of slimes in the animal kingdom and their impact on humans before returning to Andy's work and the potential for designing novel adhesives for medical use.
The episode is 34 minutes, and his part is featured in the first eight minutes or so, and then periodically throughout the rest of the episode.
