The SCI/RSC Colloids Group is delighted to announce that Dr Jerry Heng of Imperial College London is the 2020 recipient of the McBain Medal.
Dr Heng’s research programme focuses on surfaces and interfaces for the control of nucleation and crystallisation. His research group demonstrated how the interface can be engineered to control nucleation and crystallisation of organic polymorphs and proteins. More recently, the group introduced soft templating approaches based on molecular interactions for nucleation control and the development of continuous biocrystallisation platform for downstream purification.
The McBain Medal is presented annually to an early career researcher (within 15 years of the award of a PhD) for outstanding achievement in colloid and interface science. This half day webinar will honour Dr Jerry Heng and at the same time the Medal will be presented.
This event will be of interest to researchers in surface science, crystallisation and chemical engineering working in functional, responsive, and self-healing materials; controlled release; tuneable soft materials and soft actuation. The meeting will focus on aspects that underpin crystallisation with applications in colloidal stabilisation in foods, electronics, renewable energy, healthcare and more.
