Double Award for Dr David Fairen-Jimenez

last modified May 09, 2017 12:09 PM

Dr David Fairen-Jimenez has received recently two awards: the Barrer Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), and Royal Society Translation Award.

The Barrer Award is granted by the Awards Committee of the RSC’s Materials Chemistry Division, the British Zeolite Association (BZA) and the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI). This prize awards his outstanding and imaginative work in porous materials for gas adsorption and drug delivery applications, including the formation of spin-out companies. On the other hand, the RS Translational award is designed to promote innovation and fill the funding gap between scientific research and the exploitation of an idea through venture capital investment.

David is a Royal Society University Research Fellow leading the Adsorption & Advanced Materials Lab (AAM). His research interests are related to the evaluation of novel strategies in the design and development of advanced materials and supramolecular assemblies such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), as well as the creation of new experimental and computational methods for the prediction of their performance. In addition to energy-related applications, his research is extended towards the development of novel drug and siRNA delivery systems for cancer diagnosis and therapy. His work has been published in high-impact journals including Angewandte Chem., JACS, Chem. Commun., etc. and has received an increasing attention.
