Prizes and Awards
The 2015 “Molecular Movie” article in the journal Phys. Rev. Lett. by scientists at Brown University, Stanford and University of Edinburgh has been highlighted by the US Department of Energy (DOE) as one of the main scientific breakthroughs to come out of a National Laboratory over the past 75 years.
Jamie won for his talk entitled "Polyoxo Actinide Chemistry". The research is funded by the National Nuclear Laboratory as part of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority's PhD bursary scheme and Jamie would like to thank them for their involvement.
Well done Jamie!
Congratulations to Alex Elmi from Dr Scott Cockroft's group on winning the Nature Chemistry poster prize at the RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (MASC) Early Career Researchers' meeting.
The meeting was held today at the University of Southampton. Alex's poster presentation was on solvent effects in aromatic stacking interactions.
Professor Polly Arnold is the recipient of this year's Chancellor's Award for Research.
The award recognises her exceptional work in the chemistry of bonding and reactivity in new compounds.
Established in 2003, the Chancellor’s Awards now reward staff in four categories for teaching, research, impact and showing great potential in early career research. The awards were given at a gala dinner at the Palace of Holyrood House.
We recently held our prizegiving ceremony for undergraduates, recognising the achievements and excellence of our students. The full list of winners is below.
Well done to everyone!
