Last year, as we were planning for CIUK 2019, we lost an
incredibly important member of the CIUK Scientific Advisory Committee
with the sudden and unexpected passing of Jacky Pallas at the age of
just 54. Jacky was head of e-Research at King's College London and for
the last three years had been an active and vocal member of the CIUK
SAC, helping to shape the direction our event has taken and pushing
through many positive changes, whilst championing diversity and the
inclusion of young researchers. In her memory, and in recognition of her
passion for our conference, we decided to introduce an annual
award that will highlight the work of an early career researcher and
will allow the award winner a slot in the main programme at CIUK.
The winner of the inaugraul Award was Demi Pink from King's College London who presented her work on "The Structure of Lipid-Based Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery" as part of the main programme at CIUK 2019.
Demi was presented with her award by Jacky's partner Rachel Dickenson, her sister Andrea and her niece Danielle.
