About the Winner


Molly Stevens is a Professor in the Departments of Materials and Bioengineering at Imperial College and the Research Director for Biomedical Materials in the Institute for Biomedical Engineering. She joined Imperial in 2004 after a postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Prior to this she graduated from Bath University with a First Class Honours degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences and was then awarded a PhD in biophysics from the University of Nottingham (2000). 

Her multidisciplinary group is focused on both high quality fundamental science and translation for human health. Research in regenerative medicine within her group includes the design of novel bioactive scaffolds and new approaches towards tissue regeneration. In the field of nanotechnology the group has current research efforts in exploiting specific biomolecular recognition and self-assembly mechanisms to create new dynamic nano-materials, biosensors and drug delivery systems. Her group's research has received several high profile awards including the EU40 Award for best materials scientist under 40 in Europe. 

In 2012 she presented the Royal Society Clifford Patterson Lecture and in 2013 she was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. She is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, of the Society of Biology and of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
