Second RADDEL network meeting; Strasbourg (France) 08/02/2013

The second RADDEL network meeting took place on the 8th of February 2013 at the Institut de Biologie Moleculaire et Cellulaire (IBMC) in Strasbourg (France). The meeting was attended by 20 people from 10 different partners, including 10 ESR fellows already working in the project. Gerard Tobias as project coordinator from CSIC gave a small introduction to the new fellows about RADDEL, and then each newly recruited researcher gave a small introduction about themseves to the network partners. The fellows also presented the results obtained so far in their research projects, and there was a discussion about the scientific aspects of the project and the work to carry out in the next few months. In the afternoon session, a Supervisory Board meeting took place, where aspects related with the implementation of the project were discussed.

Dr. Khuloud Al-Jamal from KCL receives the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Science Award 2012

Scientist wins RPS Award

Dr Khuloud Al-Jamal, the winner of this year’s RPS Science Award, has been recognised for her exciting work in the field of nanomedicine. Dr Al-Jamal has extensive experience in the design and development of novel nanoscale delivery systems and her current interests involve using novel nanomaterials in therapeutic and diagnostic applications.

The RPS Science Award has a long history with previous winners invariably going on to make significant contributions in the field of pharmaceutical science. The award is presented to a pharmaceutical scientist with no more than 10 years’ experience at post-doctoral level who has a proven record of independent research and published work that shows outstanding promise.

Dr Al-Jamal delivered her RPS Award Lecture “Nanomedicines: tiny objects great hopes” on 12 September 2012 at the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences UKPharmSci 2012 conference in Nottingham. The award was presented to her by Helen Gordon, CEO, Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
