Dr Nick Lane wins 2015 Biochemical Society Award

18 March 2014

Dr Nick Lane, from the Genetics, Evolution & Environment Department, has been awarded the 2015 Biochemical Society Award.  This is in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the molecular life sciences, with a special emphasis on education and/or the public understanding of science.

"This is a wonderful accolade and a huge honour.  Trying to bring a world of invisible molecules to life for a wider audience has forced me to wrestle with some of the most interesting questions in science, and with some of the finest minds.  It's great fun and enormously rewarding." - Dr Lane's reaction to receiving the award.

Dr Lane is a Reader in Evolutionary Bioschemistry in the Research Department of Genetics, Evolution & Environment at UCL.  His research focuses on the role of bioenergetics in the origin of life and the evolution of cells.

Dr Lane has been invited to give his Medal Lecture about the bioenergetic constraints on the evolution of life, at a Biochemical Society Conference during 2015.  His lecture will be also published in Biochemical Society Transactions.
