The following comments were written by Zeryab's Nuffield Bursary Supervisor, Dr James Garnett, Imperial College: "Zeryab was a pleasure to work with, a very personable and a bright student -- I'm sure he will go far. He picked up laboratory work very quickly and confidently and was doing experiments by himself within a day or so. I was impressed with this knowledge and understanding of biology, chemistry and mathematics. Zeryab worked on a new purification strategy for a set of proteins that I had already been working on. Another project entailed cloning from scratch a protein also expressed in E.coli. I have never been able to produce this protein so Zeryab worked his magic and manage to get a system working which I have never been able to do in the past. This work will be published in a scientific journal with Zeryab as a named author".
