SCI's Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group and RSC's Colloid & Interface Science Group
This event is no longer available for registration.
The SCI Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group and RSC Colloid & Interface Science Group are delighted to announce that Dr Valeria Garbin of Imperial College London is the 2018 recipient of the McBain Medal. Dr Garbin’s research programme focuses on fundamental aspects of microscale transport phenomena in soft and biological matter. Her team has performed the first measurement of steric interactions between nanoparticles at fluid interfaces, discovered new mechanisms of the removal of nanoparticles from fluid interfaces, and pioneered the use of optical tweezers to manipulate biocolloids for ultrasound medical imaging.
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 Dr Garbin and at the same time the Medal will be presented.
