Congratulations to Canadian Neurophotonics Platform researcher Robert Campbell, who was recently awarded the 2015 Rutherford memorial medal in Chemistry by the Royal Society of Canada.
From the Royal Society announcement:
Robert Campbell is an international authority on the development and application of fluorescent proteins for live cell imaging. He has developed many innovative biochemical imaging tools that have been enthusiastically embraced by hundreds of cell biology and neuroscience research groups from around the world. These tools have advanced our understanding of intracellular signaling dynamics and are now enabling the visualization of neural activity in model organisms.
The Rutherford memorial medal is given in recognition of outstanding research in any branch of chemistry and in recognition of Lord Rutherford’s own research carried out in Canada at a relatively young age.
