Simon picks up Dutch honours

There were plaudits all round when Leeds chemistry PhD student Simon Patching clinched first prize at a prestigious international workshop in Holland, recently.

Simon, pictured, won the award for a poster on his research into Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.

The workshop, entitled "The Future of Solid State NMR in Biology" was staged in Leiden and attended by numerous European diplomats.

"Ultimately Simonís work will feed back into the understanding and treatment of human disease," said Dr Richard Herbert of Chemistry at the University of Leeds. Simon is a member of an interdisciplinary group of scientists led by Professor Peter Henderson, of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Dr Herbert.
