Professor Nguyen Thi Kim Thanh, working at UCL University in the UK, won the award for her important contributions in basic research on chemical synthesis and the analysis of physical properties of nanomaterials. plasmonic and magnetic for biomedical applications.

Nanomaterials have shown some potential in biomedicine. Their applicability will be enhanced when they have physical properties, along with stability and compatibility in the biological environment. This can be achieved by synthesizing nanoparticles with novel optical, magnetic, electronic and catalytic properties, and such that they are compatible with the biological environment and active under controlled conditions. tight control.

Speaking when being awarded the award, Professor Nguyen Thi Kim Thanh said: “I am delighted and honored that interdisciplinary work with my collaborators has been recognized, so this award goes to both the research team and my collaborators.”. Prof. Thanh is also happy that his research can bring direct benefits in prolonging the life of cancer patients.

According to Dr Helen Pain, Chief Executive of the Royal Chemical Society UK, although we are in the process of moving through a particularly turbulent and challenging era, it is important to celebrate successes and advances in knowledge as real opportunities to improve our lives. Professor Thanh’s research is a great example of why we celebrate great science and we are proud to recognize their contribution today.

The Royal Society of Chemistry Awards UK is one of the oldest and most prestigious awards in the world, recognizing the achievements of individuals, groups and organizations in advancing the specialty of chemistry. .

To date, 60 scientists have been honored by the Royal Society of Chemistry in the United Kingdom and subsequently received the Nobel Prize for their research, such as professors, Dr. Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Fraser Stoddart and Ben Feringa. won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and Professor John B Goodenough won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The Royal Chemical Society of Great Britain was founded in 1841, with its headquarters in London, to connect international chemists with each other and with scientists in other fields as well as with society as a whole. Currently, the Association has about 50,000 international members. The association also provides the support and resources needed to make important advances in chemical knowledge.
