Honours for Polymer Centre chairmanPosted on Thursday, February 7th, 2008 in News| Share this article
Congratulations to Professor Tony Ryan, who has been awarded an OBE in the 2005/6 New Year’s Honours list for services to science.
Tony’s research interests are in structure development during polymer processing, but he has applied the understandings he has developed in this field to a number of applications in polymer science, including nano-scale devices and the development of synthetic skin. He was the Royal Institute Christmas lecturer in 2002.
