Translational Prize Fellows

Students Richard Howe, Tarun Vemulkar, Jeroen Verheyen, Jean de la Verpilliere and Philipp Brauninger have been selected as the NanoDTC Translational Prize Fellows

Richard Howe (c2011, Dept. of Engineering), Tarun Vemulkar (c2012, Dept. of Physics), Jeroen Verheyen (Associate 2014, Dept. of Clinical Neuroscience), Jean de la Verpilliere (c2013, Dept. of Engineering) and Philipp Brauninger (Associate 2016have been selected as the NanoDTC Translational Prize Fellows for 2016-17.

Richard will be based at the Department of Engineering for the duration of the award, working on low-cost graphene inks for roll-to-roll printing.

Tarun and Jeroen will work as a team at the Department of Physics, looking at commercially viable microfluidic applications for magnetic particles designed at the Cavendish Laboratory.

Jean will be based at the Department of Engineering and will work on scaling up production of new battery materials which he has prepared during his PhD.

Philipp will also be based at the Department of Engineering, and will work on a transfer-free process for integrating graphene processing in conventional microelectronic foundries.

The NanoDTC Translational Prize Fellowship is awarded to exceptional NanoDTC Students and Associates to carry out projects which enable the translation of cutting edge nanoscience research to higher Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs). Awardees interact strongly with industry during the award, to help the development of technologies that are commercially viable and relevant.

Selection of awardees for the Translational Prize is done through a 2-stage competitive process involving a presentation to NanoDTC community at the first stage, and a written application at the final stage. Each application is assessed by a multidisciplinary panel comprising of academics and individuals with business experience.
