Synopsis

Harnessing colloid and interface science to drive biomaterials and biotechnology development


SCI's Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group and RSC's Colloid & Interface Science Group are delighted to announce that Prof Matthew Gibson of the University of Warwick is the 2021 recipient of the McBain Medal. Matthew’s research programme focuses on harnessing polymer, interface, and colloid science to drive biomaterials and biotechnology development.


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 full day meeting will honour Prof Matthew Gibson and at the same time the Medal will be presented. 


Attendees

This event will be of interest to researchers working on colloid and polymer chemistry, soft matter physics, drug delivery, materials science, and biointerfaces. The meeting will focus on fundamental aspects that underpin applications in cell preservation, sensing, nanomedicine, and diagnostics.
