This prestigious lecture is given annually by a younger chemist working in the area of macrocyclic and/or supramolecular chemistry. The award lecture is given in memory of Professor Bob Hay, one of the pioneers of macrocyclic chemistry in the UK.
The lecture was presented at the MASC annual meeting, held online in 2021. The cup was delivered by Prof. Ross Forgan, who won the cup last year.
Guillaume will keep the cup until the next MASC meeting when I'll pass it on to the next winner.
The Young Researchers Medal is awarded to a by the Macro group to UK-based scientist whose contributions to polymer science show outstanding promise for the future. Guillaume will be awarded a bronze medal and will deliver a medal award lecture at the Macro Group UK meeting in Autumn 2022.
This award is a great recognition for the what the group has achieved over the past 6 years.
