RSC Prizewinners Symposium

Students and staff were treated to some fascinating chemistry at the RSC Prizewinners Symposium. With two prizewinners giving talks and receiving their medals.medal presentation Dr Nicholas Chilton (Manchester) received the Dalton Young Researchers Award for his major contributions to theory and modelling in molecular magnetism.

medal presentation

Professor Mark Wallace (Oxford) received the Norman Heatley Award for his distinguished work in the area of artifical lipid bilayers, creating a new way of studying membrane proteins.

We thank them both for their interesting insights into their work, all present enjoyed the event. We’d also like to thank the Royal Society of Chemistry for their support in this symposium.

Our own staff also provided talks to complement the two areas with Dr Ian Gass discussing his Radical approach to molecular magnetism and Dr Marcus Dymond discussing Lipid protein interactions and phospholipid homeostasis. Both highlighting some of the great research from our own chemistry laboratories.
