This year The Norwich Research Park DTP had its first PIPS student complete his internship in the US.
Tom Eyles spent three months from May to August 2016 as a Research and Development Intern with Genomatica, a leading bioengineering technology company in the United States. Its first commercial process, Geno BDO™ to make biobased 1,4-butanediol (BDO), has been licensed and commercialized by Novamont in Northern Italy. Tom hoped to get an insight into how research is conducted in industry compared to academia with a view to using this to help guide his future career plans.
