Synopsis

The SCI/RSC Colloids Group is delighted to announce that Prof Roel Dullens of the University of Oxford is the 2019 recipient of the McBain Medal. Prof Roel's research programme focuses on colloidal physics including phase transitions and glasses.

 

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 one day meeting will honour Prof Roel Dullens and at the same time the Medal will be presented.  


Attendees

This event will be of interest to researchers from colloid chemistry, soft matter physics and chemical engineering backgrounds working in functional, responsive, and self-healing materials; controlled release; tuneable soft materials and soft actuation. The meeting will focus on fundamental aspects that underpin applications in formulations, catalysis, soft robotics, nanomaterials processing and more.
