Yesterday we celebrated the 10th annual Graeme Clark Oration, of which POF is very proud to be a long-time sponsor. The Oration informs the community about scientific advances in health and medical research, delivered by recognised global leaders in their field. This year the Oration was delivered by Professor Paula T Hammond and focussed on ‘How Engineered Materials Are Transforming Medical Treatment’.
Professor Hammond is currently a member of MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, the MIT Energy Initiative, and a founding member of the MIT Institute for Soldier Nanotechnology. The core of her work is the use of electrostatics and other complementary interactions to generate functional materials with highly controlled architecture. Her research in nanomedicine encompasses the development of new biomaterials to enable drug delivery from surfaces with spatio-temporal control.
The night was a success with a huge attendance, and we’re already looking forward to the 2019 Oration.
