The annual Natural Product Reports Emerging Investigator Lectureship recognises a researcher who has made a significant contribution to a natural products-related area of the chemical sciences in their early independent career.
We are delighted to announce that Associate Professor Hans Renata has been chosen by the NPR Editorial Board as this year’s receipient of the lectureship.
“It is an honor to receive the 2021 Natural Product Reports Emerging Investigator Lectureship. I would like to thank the selection committee, my mentors and colleagues (Phil, Frances, Ben, Ryan, Keary) who have supported me over the years, and last but not least, my lab members for their hard work and creativity, without which this work would not be possible.” – Prof. Hans Renata
