This is the laboratory where Trevor searched for new nitric oxide binding metal centres at the Arctic University, Tromsø, Norway).

The Churchill Fellowship provided funding for Trevor to travel to Europe to develop his skills and draw on the experience of others to achieve this goal. His Fellowship trip took him to the Arctic University (Tromsø, Norway) where he worked with synthetic chemists to test alternative metal centres that will potentially improve the selectivity of his sensor for nitric oxide. From the “library” of metal macrocycles Trevor investigated, four were chosen for further testing at CSIRO in Canberra. Trevor also used his fellowship to visit researchers in the United Kingdom and Denmark. In addition he deepened his knowledge of bioinspired chemistry though attending The 13th European Biological Inorganic Chemistry Conference (EuroBIC) in Hungary.
