Philip Leverhulme Prize

Congratulations to Dr Scott Cockroft on being awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize.

The £100,000 award is for his work on answering fundamental questions regarding the nature of molecular interactions and chemical reactivity.

Philip Leverhulme Prizes recognise the achievement of outstanding researchers whose work has already attracted international recognition and whose future career is exceptionally promising. Every year the prize scheme makes up to thirty awards of £100,000, across a range of academic disciplines.

The competition for these prizes is very fierce, so it is a real credit to Dr Cockroft that he has been successful.
