Award for Soren Demin

Soren Demin

This year's Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Ronald Belcher Award has been given to Soren Demin.

Soren Demin studied for his M.Phil and PhD degrees at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology under the supervision of Professor E.A.H Hall in the Analytical Biotechnology group. His PhD thesis entitled Breaking the barrier to fast electrochemistry, is a look at the deeply buried redox site of Glucose Oxidase in situ via direct fast electrochemistry . This research is aimed at helping understanding of how biology can be interfaced with electronic components and is applicable in areas of bio sensing, photovoltaics and organic computing. He has been previously awarded the Future Leaders in Biotechnology prize, and is a multiple Cambridge blue. Currently he works on technical due diligence for tier 1 investment banks and hedge funds in Biotechnology and pharma. 

The Award is given for work on an analytical topic, by a graduate of a British or Irish University and is sponsored by the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund of the RSC.

A previous winner from Prof Hall's group in 1998 was Dr Sridhar Iyengar. He went on to spin off his PhD work, setting up Agamatrix Inc. Agamatrix recently announced a global partnership with sanofi-avensis.  Srid and the Agamatrix/Wavesense team host the department's MBE students during their Boston Biotech circle field trip each Easter.  Srid is able to tell and show the story of lab-bench in Cambridge to Global success.
