Innova award for David Fairen-Jimenez

Dr David Fairen-Jimenez with Carlos Negro, President of Chemistry Forum, Jose Ramon Urquijo, Vicepresident of CSIC and Ernesto Castañeda, President of Spanish Association of Chemists (Nov 2015)

Dr David Fairen-Jimenez has been awarded the Innova award in sustainable chemistry SusChem 2015 for excellence in research in collaboration with industry. This prize awards his continuous efforts on the necessary shift from today’s fossil-based energy economy to a more sustainable economy based on hydrogen, renewable energy and carbon capture to mitigate the effects of global warming. His work has been published in high-impact journals including Angewandte Chem., JACS, Chem. Commun., etc. He is indeed a prolific author, with 53 publications, and an increasing number of citations.

David is a Royal Society University Research Fellow leading the Adsorption & Advanced Materials Lab. 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.
