Professor Polly Arnold has had an article published sharing her thoughts on what can be done to retain our female scientists.
With numbers dropping at every career stage Prof. Arnold talks about her Chemical Imbalance website, that deals with women in STEM subjects and some action points that can help recruit and retain the best scientists from the most diverse backgrounds.
Academics form the School of Chemistry have recently had two articles published in Nature journals.
Professor Polly Arnold has been awarded the Lord Kelvin Medal by the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
The award is a senior career prize. It is in recognition of Prof. Arnold's outstanding contribution to the field of synthetic chemistry through her world leading research on the lanthanide and actinide elements which has changed the way scientists think about these elements and particularly the behaviour of uranium's oxide dication which is a major component of nuclear waste.
Congratulations to Polly!
Prof. Dominic Campopiano has recently had an article published in Nature Chemical Biology. The article is titled "Using the pimeloyl-CoA synthetase adenylation fold to synthesize fatty acid thioesters".
The research was carried out in collaboration with fellow EaStCHEM researcher Prof. James Naismith.
Congratulations to PhD student Rebecca Nicolson from Dr Carole Morrison's group on the award of the top poster prize at this year's Johnson Matthey Annual Conference.
She saw off stiff competition to win the best 2nd year CASE student poster prize.
Congratulations to Prof. Polly Arnold who has been awarded an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC).
The research programme, called f-ex (f-block hydrocarbon interactions: exploration; exploitation), is for a five-year, 2.5M euro, blue-skies research project designed to explore subtle bonding interactions in f-block complexes to improve our fundamental understanding of their bonding and reactivity.
Three researchers from the School of Chemistry have been awarded prizes by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
