First PIPS in US

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.
