Beaufort Researchers from Galway featured in Nature

Dr Anne Marie Power and Jaimie-Leigh Jonker from NUIG have followed on from the success of their article in Scientific American with a feature in Nature. Selected as a Research Highlight from recent scientific literature it is a great opportunity for the team to attract further interest in their work.


Beaufort Scientists' work featured in Scientific American

The work of Beaufort Scientist, Dr Anne Marie Power from NUIG, was the focus of an article in Scientific American released today. Dr Power and PhD student, Jaime-Leigh Jonker have taken to social media sites Twitter and Facebook to enlist the help of the Public to track down sightings of the Goose Barnacle on Irish shores. Hopefully, with this extra publicity in Scientific American, the team will be inundated with fresh samples.
