On International Womens' Day 2023, we are celebrating the news that Bea Jones, a 3rd year PhD student in the Photoactive Materials group in the Department of Materials Science and the B21 beamline at Diamond Light Source, was awarded the Roscoe Medal (Gold prize) for Chemistry at the 2023 STEM for Britain event held on Monday 6th March 2023 in the Houses of Parliament.  Congratulations Bea!

STEM for Britain is a major scientific poster exhibition which has been held in Parliament since 1997, which aims is to give members of both Houses of Parliament an insight into the outstanding research work being undertaken in UK universities by early-career researchers. Bea presented a poster entitled “Controlling Molecular Delivery by Squeezing Liquid Crystal Dispersions with Light” based on her recently published JACS paper - see also our November Paper of the Month.
