Fellow awarded Royal Society Medal for ground-breaking work

Congratulations to Professor Carol Robinson, Professorial Fellow in Chemistry at Exeter, who has been awarded the Royal Society’s Davy Medal for her ground-breaking and novel use of mass spectrometry for the characterisation of large protein complexes.

The Royal Society’s Medals were created to recognise excellence in science across the disciplines and to reward those who have made outstanding achievements. The Davy Medal is awarded annually for an outstandingly important recent discovery in any branch of chemistry.

Professor Robinson said: “I am absolutely delighted to have been awarded the Davy medal. When I look back over the history of this award, first presented in 1877, I can’t help but feel extremely humble. Previous awardees include the initial recipients Bunsen and Kirchhoff, Emil Fischer, van’t Hoff, the Curies, Le Chatelier, and Pauling to name but a few. I feel privileged to join such famous chemists.”
