Prizes and Awards
Congratulations to Jessica Walker, from the Nudelman Group, who won 2nd prize in the Freeze-Frames Competition at the UK Cryo-Microscopy Group meeting last week.
The Freeze Frames competition is held annually at the Cryo Microscopy Group meeting as an antidote to the usual poster competition. It allows postgraduate students and post-docs to present a short summary of their work to the whole conference.
Congratulations to Mohammed Alkattan, from Dr Michael Shaver's group, for his "Best Poster" prize at the recent Frontiers in Green Materials Conference.
The one-day event provided a forum to discuss and inspire inter-disciplinary, innovative research based on reducing the use of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and application of chemical and material products. It was held in London on the 12th of December.
The winner of the 2016/17 Fraser and Norma Stoddart Chemistry Prize is Dr Yue Hu. Yue's supervisor during her PhD was Prof Neil Robertson.
The Stoddart Prize will be awarded on the afternoon of Monday, 10 April 2017 by Professor Sir Fraser Stoddart, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2016 for his work on molecular machines.
Congratulations to Will Kew, from Dr Uhrin's group, who won the Best poster prize at the 2017 conference with his poster: "Scotch Whisky as Interrogated by Advanced Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Chemometrics".
The posters were presented to a group of MPs at Westminster and the medal is accompanied by a £2,000 prize. This is James' last week on group duties as he is flying off to a postdoctoral position with Nobel Prize winner Professor Sir Fraser Stoddart from 1st April.
