Dr Ghori came top of the poll and received a Platinum Award from conference organizers. Researchers at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford took second and third places.

Recently, a company named N-Cyte Ltd has been formed to commercialize this new technique, which is based at the University’s 3M Buckley Innovation Centre.

“Using this technology, we were able to construct a 3D chemical map of the distribution of a drug in a tablet at a nanometer size range.  We were delighted that the significance of this technique has been recognised in this way” said Professor Conway.
