Postgraduate instrumentation bursaries awarded

17 May 2007

Two postgraduate students have been awarded bursaries of £1000 from the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers.

Glyn Collinson, of the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory, received his award for work developing instrumentation to calibrate and check sensors on board spacecraft. Yitzchak Grant, from UCL Biochemical Engineering, has been recognised for his work on novel instrumentation for the rapid prediction of operating conditions for freeze drying processes.

The Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers awards bursaries each year to outstanding candidates at ten leading UK universities. Candidates must be active in work that is likely to be of benefit to the UK in the field of instrumentation.

The Company promotes the craft of instrument making in the UK, and aims to support individuals whose career will be closely connected with instrumentation.
