Awards and Achievements

Elected Member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO)

Professor Kostas Tokatlidis has been elected as a member of the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO).

Prof Tokatlidis joins 51 other outstanding researchers who have been newly-elected to the organisation which promotes excellence in the life sciences. There are currently 1600 EMBO members and 59 Nobel laureates amongst the membership.

The goals of EMBO are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers and help build a European research environment of scientific excellence.

Prof Tokatlidis received this extremely prestigious election as a recognition of his dedicated and long-standing efforts and seminal findings on the fundamental mechanisms of how the cell's powerhouses – mitochondria – assemble and function.

Distictions of Graduate Students

Eleni-Asimina Kabouraki was awarded the Research Student Price Oral Presentation Award and an Attendance Bursary for Research Students at the Symposium J, E-MRS Spring Meeting 2013 for the presentation of her work:

Quantum dot based higher order nonlinear photonic devices

The fabrication of cadmium sulfide (CdS) quantum dot (QD) containing 3D high-resolution nanostructures that exhibit higher order diffraction patterns and stop-gaps at visible wavelengths is presented. These structures are produced using direct laser writing (DLW) of novel hybrid organic-inorganic materials and are proposed as an emerging platform for photonic applications.
