Researchers Learn the Business

Other MEnt students work with established or new companies. One current student, chemistry graduate Iram Choudary, is working in conjunction with Iota Nanosolutions, a Unilever spin-out company developing technology that originated at Liverpool University. The project was suggested by Lyn Sheppard, head of postgraduate studies at MSEC, who has contacts at Unilever. Choudary spent 2 weeks at Unilever Ventures in London, Iota's main funder, developing a business plan for their novel products. "The company is working with cutting-edge nanotechnology," says Choudary. "It is a great grounding, working simultaneously on technical aspects of the product and business issues. The company mentors are all very supportive."
