NanoDTC Translational Prize Fellows Selected

Students Richard Howe, Tarun Vemulkar and Jeroen Verheyen have been selected as the NanoDTC Translational Prize Fellows for 2016-17

Richard Howe (c2011, Dept. of Engineering), Tarun Vemulkar (c2012, Dept. of Physics) and Jeroen Verheyen (Associate 2015, Dept. of Clinical Neuroscience) have 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.

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.  

Applications for the next round of the Translation Prize will be invited in Oct 2016. Applicants can apply individually or as a team of two. Cambridge PhD students who are not currently connected to the NanoDTC can apply if they team up with a current NanoDTC Student or Associate.
