Poster Prize winner at RAPS 2014

Congratulations to Robert Deller, who was awarded the Polymer Chemistry prize for best poster at last week’s Recent Appointees in Polymer Science (RAPS) 2014 meeting.

The winning poster, titled ‘Cryopreservation of cells using peptidomimetic macromolecules’, was based on Robert’s PhD project, which he recently completed at the University of Warwick under the supervision of Matthew Gibson, a former RAPS committee member. Robert’s research into cell cryopreservation led to publications in Biomaterials Science and Nature Communications - click on the link below to read the former:

Robert will soon be moving to the University of Bristol to take on a postdoc position in Adam Perriman’s research group.

RAPS 2014, which took place on 3rd-5th September at the University of Reading, was the 15th annual meeting organised by Recent Appointees in Polymer Science- a group set up to help polymer science researchers just starting out in their careers to forge links and networks for the future. This year’s meeting featured a diverse array of talks from early career researchers working in a variety of polymer-related fields, as well as talks from more established members of the polymer community eager to share advice and lessons learnt from their own careers.

For more information on RAPS- including how to join (for free!)- take a look at the RAPS website.
