Jana and Samantha presented their research at the 5th Young Materials Researchers Day. Jana gave a talk about tuning the amphiphilicity of alginic acid-based polyelectrolyte multilayers to enhance marine fouling resistance, and Samantha won a poster prize for her poster about NO-releasing hybrid polymers. Congratulations!
