ISSC’s David Collins Wins Wesley Cocker Award

David Collins recently won the Wesley Cocker Award from the Society of Chemical Industry for his papers on monoPLOT column fabrication and a patent on the same topic.

The Wesley Cocker Award aims to recognise a young scientist – PhD student or younger – in the Republic of Ireland who has made a major contribution in some aspect of chemistry relevant to Irish industry.

Professor Cocker (1908-2007) was instrumental in establishing the Irish Section of the Society of Chemical Industry in 1947. The award named in his honour is given to the best paper or patent on a topic of relevance to industrial chemistry, where the main author is a PhD or BSc student in Ireland, and is a member of the society.
