Synthesis CDT graduate wins prestigious Springer Thesis Prize

Many congratulations to Dr Kieran Hudson (2011 Cohort), who has been awarded a Springer Thesis Prize by the scientific publisher Springer (Germany) for his PhD thesis entitled "Carbohydrate-Based Interactions at the Molecular and the Cellular Level".

Kieran’s thesis was nominated for the prize by his PhD supervisors Professors Tim Gallagher and Dek Woolfson after it was awarded a Faculty of Science Commendation (awarded to the top PhD graduates annually). The nomination was endorsed by his external examiner, Professor Chris Hunter FRS (University of Cambridge).

The prize means that Kieran’s thesis will be published in the "Springer Theses" series. Called the “best of the best”, world-leading research institutes are invited to submit their best thesis each year for publication in this series, with winners selected based on research impact and scientific excellence. As well as benefiting from the sharing of his research through publication and distribution of his thesis in print and digital form, Kieran will receive a €500 cash prize.

Kieran graduated from the CDT in 2015 and at the time of writing he is carrying out postdoctoral work at the University of British Columbia.
