“Huge thanks to all my current and previous students, colleagues, and mentors – I’m very humbled as previous awardees are among my all-time favourite scientists: Martina Stenzel, Kristofer Thurecht, Andrew Whittaker, Georgina Such, Sébastien Perrier, Michelle Coote, Gordon Wallace, and Frank Caruso.
It was a great pleasure to talk about our science at the Pacific Polymer Conference #PPC17 in Brisbane last week. This, together with seeing again so many friends and colleagues was a wonderful conclusion to this year.”
About the David Sangster Polymer Science and Technology Achievement Award:
In 1992 the Polymer Division created the Australian Polymer Science and Technology Achievement Award, to recognize the achievement of Australian polymer scientists while their careers are still developing. This was renamed the David Sangster Polymer Science and Technology Achievement Award at the 29th Australasian Polymer Symposium in Hobart in February 2007 in honour of David Sangster, an elder statesman of the Australasian polymer science community who has made exemplary contributions to the field of polymer radiation chemistry and emulsion polymerisation and has nurtured many generations of research students at the University of Sydney and many other universities.
