About the Winner


Stephen Mann received his BSc. degree in Chemistry from UMIST (1976) and D.Phil. from the University of Oxford (1984), where he was a student of Professor R. J. P. Williams FRS. In 1981, he was elected to a Junior Research Fellowship at Keble College, Oxford, and took up a lectureship at the University of Bath in 1984 where he was promoted to reader in 1988 and appointed to a full professorship in 1990. Professor Mann moved to the University of Bristol in 1998, where he is Professor of Chemistry, Director of the Centre for Organized Matter Chemistry, Director of the Centre for Protolife Research, and Principal of the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials. 

Professor Mann has made contributions to biomineralization and bioinspired materials chemistry with a focus on inorganic nanoscale self-assembly and complexity. Most recently, he has initiated new studies in protocell design and construction. Prof Mann is a Fellow of the Royal Society UK (2003) and was awarded the Royal Society Davy Medal in 2016. He received the RSC de Gennes Prize and SCF French-British Prize in 2011. Prof Mann was a visiting professor at Harvard University in 2011 and has published over 500 scientific papers.
