Five CPE academics made the 2019 Clarivate Highly Cited Researchers List, Aron Walsh, James Durrant, Jenny Nelson, Magda Titirici and Iain McCulloch.

Prof Molly Stevens and Prof Iain McCulloch join Prof Jenny Nelson and Prof James Durrant as FRS after being elected Fellows of the Royal Society in recognition of their "contributions to science, both in fundamental research resulting in greater understanding, and also in leading and directing scientific and technological progress in industry and research establishments."

Prof Martin Heeney, Royal Society of Chemistry 2020 Peter Day Award, for his pioneering contributions to solution processed organic semiconductors, particularly heavy main group containing polymers, and their device applications.

Prof Iain McCulloch, Royal Society of Chemistry 2020 Interdisciplinary Prize, for advances in the design, synthesis and innovative application of functional materials in optics, electronics and energy.

Dr Nicola Gasparini named World Economic Forum Young Scientist for his record of research excellence and commitment to serve society at large through exceptional contribution in 2020.

Dr Firat Güder awarded Imperial College’s 2020 President’s Medal as an outstanding early career researcher.

Prof Matthew Fuchter Finalist in Chemistry Category in 2020 Annual Blavatnik Awards Matt was recognised for his work on “The synthesis and study of novel functional systems for use in a range of applications from novel electronic materials to therapeutic agents.”

Prof Molly Stevens was awarded the 2018 Franklin Medal and Prize for her contributions to ground-breaking and influential advances in the engineering of bioinspired materials for regenerative medicine and biosensing applications. Additional congratulations go to Molly Stevens, who has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering for her contributions to tissue regeneration and biosensing. Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.

Dr Kim Jelfs was awarded the RSC Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize in 2018 for the most meritorious and promising original investigations in chemistry and published results of those investigations.
