  • Dr Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) has won the Joseph H Hazen Education Prize for 2007, one of the most important teaching awards in the discipline.

    Dr Cain was awarded the Hazen Prize - awarded by the History of Science Society - in recognition of his exemplary teaching and his long record of service to education in the profession.

    The History of Science Society is the world's largest society dedicated to understanding science, technology, medicine, and their interactions with society in historical context.

    "It's a great honour to receive this award," said Dr Cain. "Thanks to the people who support me every day, and thanks to those who've worked so hard to train me. I'm a tough apprentice, but they know how much I've valued their perseverance. And thanks especially to the students. They give me great license to experiment with teaching and learning ideas. It's their engagement and growth that marks any true success I have."
