Professor Howard Chase has been awarded the Donald Medal of the Institution of Chemical Engineers. The medal is named after a long-serving Honorary Secretary and former Ramsay Professor at University College London where biochemical engineering was first established in the UK. It is awarded by the Biochemical Engineering Subject Group of the IChemE for outstanding services in biochemical engineering. The medal will be presented later this year.
Howard said, "It is a great honour that my activities and impact in the area in biochemical engineering have been recognised by the award of this medal. I am extremely grateful for all the support and assistance that I have had from my research students and post-doctoral workers over the years that has been essential to this achievement."
