Prof Angela Casini wins 2019 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship Award
30 May 2019
Professor Angela Casini has been named as the recipient of the 2019 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship award, sponsored by the journal Inorganic Chemistry and the American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Inorganic Chemistry.
Professor Casini is Chair of Medicinal and Bioinorganic Chemistry at Cardiff University and leads the MSc Medicinal Chemistry, which explores the wider context of drug discovery, business and healthcare. The award acknowledges the impact of Professor Casini’s research on ‘metals in medicine', a central area where inorganic chemistry interfaces with biology. The award will be presented during a dedicated symposium at the ACS Fall meeting in San Diego this year.
William Tolman, Editor-in-Chief of Inorganic Chemistry said: “Angela’s research has had a tremendous impact in the field of metals in medicine, a central area where inorganic chemistry interfaces with biology. Her work is highly important and multidisciplinary, with influences spanning biochemistry, biology, and inorganic chemistry. I look forward to her lecture at the symposium to be held in her honour at the National ACS Meeting in San Diego in August!”
Professor Casini said: “It is one of the most prestigious and renowned awards in the inorganic chemistry community worldwide. I am extremely honoured by being among the recipients, and as a European scientist, this recognition of my research activities also reflects their international impact. I would like to add that I am particularly grateful to my research group for the great work that they conducted in these last years, and for the enthusiasm they put into everything they experimented.”
