Francisco Fernandez-Trillo (Paco) completed his PhD in organic chemistry in 2004 at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) with Prof. Susana López Estévez and undertook postdoctoral research first with Prof. Neil Cameron in Durham (UK), then in Santiago de Compostela with Prof. Ricardo Riguera and Prof. Eduardo Fernandez-Megia, and later in Nottingham (UK) with Prof. Cameron Alexander on polymeric nanomaterials for biocatalysis, cell recognition, and synthetic biology. He now leads a research group working at the interface between Chemistry and Biology. At present, there is a strong emphasis in identifying innovative solutions to the increasing concern of antimicrobial resistance, as well as designing high-throughput screening strategies to identify novel biofunctional polymers. Paco’s research has been supported by a range of sources including the Royal Society, the Wellcome Trust, BBSRC and EPSRC. Paco sits in the operational committee for the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Physical Sciences for Health at Birmingham, and co-leads the Healthcare Technologies Research Theme at the School of Chemistry.
Dr. Kei Saito is currently a Senior Lecturer at the School of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Monash University, Australia. He received his BEng. (2000), MEng. (2002) and Ph.D. (2004) degrees from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. From 2004-2005, he was a Research Associate at the 21COE Centre for Practical Nano-Chemistry, Department of Applied Chemistry, Waseda University, Japan. From 2005-2007, he was a Postdoctoral fellow, at the Centre for Green Chemistry, University of Massachusetts Lowell, USA. His research interests are in developing new synthesis and production methods for novel sustainable/environment benign polymeric materials.

The work for which Professor Sawamoto received this award entailed the development of a new polymerization process involving metal catalysts. He was the first in the world to use a unique metal catalyst to achieve precision radical polymerization, which was for many years thought to be impossible. He thereby established a general theory of precision polymerization while at the same time paving the way for the precision synthesis of finely structured polymers. By doing so, he made pioneering contributions to the precision synthesis of various polymer materials that are useful for industrial and medical applications.
