On behalf of the ChemComm Editorial Board we are delighted to announce the winners of the ChemComm Emerging Investigator Lectureship 2013.
This year we received a high number of excellent nominations and therefore the Editorial Board have decided to award two Emerging Investigator Lectureships in 2013. The winners are Professor Louise A. Berben (University of California Davis, USA) and Dr Marina Kuimova (Imperial College London).
This annual lectureship recognises an emerging scientist in the early stages of their independent academic career.
The Editorial Board commended Louise’s contributions to the field of synthetic and physical inorganic chemistry, and Marina was awarded the lectureship for her excellent work within biophysical chemistry. Further details of the two Lectureships, including lecture locations, will be announced soon.
To find out more about the winners’ research, read some of their latest articles in ChemComm:
