Congratulations to Prof. Sylvia Draper for being awarded by the IInstitute of Chemistry of Ireland (ICI) the 2018 David Brown award at the Inorganic Ireland Symposium in Queen’s University Belfast.
Professor Sylvia Draper in the School of Chemistry Trinity College Dublin is honoured to be announced as the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Institute of Chemistry of Ireland (ICI) David Brown award. This was presented to her at the Inorganic Ireland Symposium in Queen’s University Belfast where she gave her award lecture entitled ‘Molecular Aromatic Platforms (MAPS): unexpected destinations from somewhat coordinated journeys’.
In presenting the award Professor Stuart James explained that ‘it was in recognition of your outstanding contribution to inorganic chemistry both nationally and internationally’. The award was established in 2014 to honour Professor David Brown of University College Dublin and his work on ferrocene. It has been presented every two years with the previous winners being Professors A. K. Powel (Karlsruher Institut fur Technologie) and M. McCann (NUIM).
Professor Draper thanked the members of her research team past and present who have brought so many ideas to life and brought international recognition to her work. She also described how in her mind the award marked the historic return of the International Conference of Coordination Chemistry to Dublin. It was last held there in 1974, when it was organised by David Brown (UCD) and Bill Davis (TCD), but will be returning in 2026 thanks to Sylvia spear-heading a successful bid in Japan earlier this year.
Professor Draper was also interviewed at the RSC “Breaking the Barriers” launch event in London in early December, where she spoke about her own experiences in relation to the recently published Breaking the Barriers report, you can see the interview here.
