Sheffield PhD students successful at international conferences

Will CullenRecently, two of our PhD students have won poster prizes at international conferences.

Will Cullen won a poster prize at the International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (ISMSC) in Strasbourg, which is a major conference in that area. The title of his poster was "Use of pH to control guest uptake, release, and exchange in a coordination cage host."

Paul TaylorPaul Taylor won 1st Prize for his poster presentation entitled, “Dip and dry micropattern-capable bioactive coatings for biomaterial surface modification in treating implant related infection and inflammation” at an international conference on Bone and Implant Infections held at Davos, Switzerland. The meeting was organised by the AO Foundation, a Swiss research institute focused on clinical and translational research in treating musculoskeletal trauma and infection, and its official research journal European Cells and Materials.The Robert Mathys Student Prize is awarded for young scientists in recognition of their scientific performance and to encourage them to continue their research career. Paul is a PhD student working with Professor Nick Williams (Chemistry) and Professor John Haycock (Kroto Research Institute) in developing novel bioactive surface coatings. The abstract of Paul’s poster will be published in the upcoming supplement of European Cells and Materials Journal.

Well done to both!
