Dr Gavin Miller has been awarded the 2021 RSC Carbohydrate Dextra Award.
By Dr Tracey Gloster, Treasurer of the RSC Carbohydrate Group
The award, sponsored by Dextra Laboratories since 1970, is presented to a scientist in the early/mid stage of their career for meritorious work in carbohydrate chemistry, largely conducted in the UK. Past winners of this award include Nobel Prize winner Fraser Stoddart.
The award is given to Dr Miller in recognition of his research into creating new probes for chemical glycobiology and for the application of non-native carbohydrate structures in medicinal chemistry. He will deliver his award lecture and be presented with the Dextra medal at the RSC Carbohydrate Group Winter meeting.
On receiving the award, Gavin said: "I would like to thank my research team for all their hard work and dedication and the UK and ROI carbohydrate community for their continued support and fruitful collaborations. I am humbled to receive an accolade of such merit. "
