We'd like to express our gratitude once again for the continued support from Dr. Jim Love. His financial support last time allowed us to build a single-molecule confocal microscope that is now being used to study the protein aggregates that are formed during the progression of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. We will use this gift to further support our research, and in particular will use it to enhance our equipment within the laboratory. 

Jim received his Ph.D. from the School of Chemistry in 1963 under the supervision of Dr. Percival in the area of Carbohydrate Chemistry. Following this, he spent over 33 years with Dow Chemical in the USA, and retired in 1998 as Global Director of Discovery Process Research, Formulation Science and Technology in Agriculture.
