Bristol researcher named Young Investigator of the Year
Press release issued: 1 June 2016
A scientist from the University of Bristol has won the British Biophysical Society's (BBS) Young Investigator of the Year award and medal.
Dr Adam Perriman, senior research fellow in the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, will be presented with his prize at the Society's 2016 meeting in July, hosted at the University of Liverpool. As the winner, Dr Perriman will also be delivering a plenary lecture at the meeting.
Dr Perriman said: "It's an absolute honour and a privilege to receive this award and medal from the British Biophysical Society. Moreover, it's wonderful to be recognised for doing something that I'm passionate about."
Anthony Watts, chair of the BBS, said: "Adam won this award in the face of very stiff competition. He joins a distinguished line of previous winners, and the Society is delighted to recognise his achievements in this way."
Dr Perriman's research focuses on the construction and study of novel hybrid biomolecular systems using advanced physical techniques. His research spans the fields of nanotechnology, biophysical chemistry, and tissue engineering.
The British Biophysical Society is an independent society, founded in 1960 for the application of physical and chemical concepts to biological systems.
