25 April 2013

The Spring issue of Nonesuch, the University of Bristol’s magazine, is available now.

The Spring issue of Nonesuch, the University of Bristol’s magazine, is available now.

In this issue we talk to Professor Dimitra Simeonidou who heads Bristol’s High-Performance Networks Group about how Bristol is leading the way on creating a new internet. You can also read an interview with Bristol’s newly elected Mayor, Bristol alumnus George Ferguson, and find out how Bristol academics are keeping a close eye on his progress.

We also look at the groundbreaking work Bristol is contributing to the wheat genome project and meet some MA students who are learning what it takes to compose successful film and television scores. Plus we find out how Bristol is helping to tackle one of the last unexplored illnesses, catch up with a well-travelled vet and discover how a 10p coin helped launch an academic career.
