Professor Nigel Slater 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 at the IChemE BESG Young Researchers Meeting which is to be held at Fitzwilliam College in Cambridge this coming Easter.
Nigel said "I am delighted on behalf of the biochemical engineering effort in the Department and in particular I am grateful to all the researchers and staff in CUBE and CURB, past and present, because it is they that have made this achievement possible."
