Carola is the fifth ESR from the CORE Network to obtain her doctorate, and we are so pleased for her.

New CORE Video: Chiral Molecules Separation - The Case of Praziquantel

As the CORE Network comes to an end, we decided to create two short videos about the Network. One of these, which we shared in a previous update, is a general video about the Network and what it is about.

The second video focuses specifically on the science behind the Network, and examines the role of the drug Praziquantel in our research. Presented by CORE ESR Maxime Charpentier, we are excited to let you know that it has now been published on our YouTube channel!

The second video can be viewed here:
