Prof Liu Bin recognised with the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Centenary Prize
NUS Vice President (Research and Technology) Professor Liu Bin, who is also the Head of NUS Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been conferred the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Centenary Prize 2021. She was honoured for her work in the innovative design and synthesis of organic molecules and nanomaterials to advance biomedical research and applications, as well as for excellence in communication.
The Royal Society of Chemistry’s prizes have recognised excellence in the chemical sciences for more than 150 years. First established in 1947, the Centenary Prize is an award granted annually to outstanding chemists, who are also exceptional communicators, from outside the United Kingdom. Fifty previous winners of a Royal Society of Chemistry Prize have gone on to win Nobel Prizes for their pioneering work, including 2019 Nobel laureate John B Goodenough.
