University of Bath Biotech Project wins PM Group Award

University of Bath Biotech Project wins PM Group Award

Congratulations to the University of  Bath team, led by Dr Asel Sartbaeva, whose 'Vaccines Without Refrigeration' entry won the PM Group Sponsored Biotechnology Award at this year's IChemE Global Awards held in Birmingham.

The Biotechnology project uses silica to protect vaccines from spoiling, and reduces the need for cold storage equipment; a novel technology that could go on to save millions of lives.

Highly commended on the night in the Biotechnology category were University of Birmingham for its Anti-Scarring Eye Drops entry, as well as uFraction8's Scalable, Low Cost Bioreactor Dewartering.

The awards celebrated the year's successes in Chemical Engineering and PM Group were delighted to once again support the evening, which saw 140 award entries come from across 21 countries.

Congratulations to all of this year's winners and finalists; further information on the event and the entries can be found on IChemE's website here.

Well done also to PM Group's own Tom McEvilly for his nomination in this year's Young Industrialist Award category; you can read more on his shortlisting here.
