Prizes and Awards
Congratulations to Nicholas Dominelli-Whiteley from Dr Scott Cockroft's group who was selected from among around 100 poster presenters as a prize winner at the 23rd IUPAC Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry held last week in Sydney, Australia.
His poster was entitled "The energetic limit of cooperativity in H-bond chains."
The IUPAC conference is a biannual event which has previously been held in Durham and Ottawa.
Dr Marc Reid, from the Lloyd-Jones group, has been chosen as one of 26 researchers highlighted as leaders of the future.
The researchers, from all over the globe, will attend the 252nd ACS National Meeting and Exposition in August. There they will have a chance to "build upon their careers and help shape the future of research information".
Dr Marc Reid, from the Lloyd-Jones group, has been awarded an RSC Young Researcher Mobility Grant to initiate some collaborative research programmes in 2017.
The grant will allow Marc to engage in collaborative projects with Prof. Guy Lloyd-Jones and Dr Andrew Leach from Liverpool John Moores University.
Congratulations to Nicholas Dominelli Whiteley and Dr James Cooper, both from the Cockroft group, for respectively winning the Nature Chemistry and ACS Central Science poster prizes at the 5th International Conference on Molecular Sensors and Molecular Logic Gates held last week in Bath.
Congratulations to Dr Stephen Moggach, the winner of the Head of College prize for Inclusion and Diversity.
Stephen has been recognised for his work in organising our Athena Swan submissions over the last few years and leads our Equality and Diversity Team.
Prof. Lesley Yellowlees, Head of the College of Science and Engineering, congratulated the winners, saying "The calibre of the applications was simply outstanding which presented the judges with quite a challenge to choose a winner."
Congratulations to Prof. Paul Attfield and his team (Dr Angel Arevalo-Lopez, Dr Elise Pachoud, Dr James Cumby, Dr Calum Lithgow) who have been awarded a Daiwa Adrian Prize for Materials Discovery using Extreme Conditions.
These Prizes are awarded by The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation on a triennial basis in recognition of significant scientific collaboration between British and Japanese research teams.
We enjoyed considerable success at the recent 50th Universities of Scotland Inorganic Chemistry (USIC) conference.
The ATALANTE Conferences provide an international forum for presentations and discussions on advances for future fuel cycles and waste management.
