The Catalan section of the Spanish Royal Chemical Society (RSEQ) has granted one of the ‘Josep Castells’ awards 2018 to Santiago Cañellas, postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Miquel Pericàs group who started as a PhD student in the same goup with a MINECO FPI-Severo Ochoa Grant. The Josep Castells award recognizes the two best PhD theses of the Catalan section of the RSEQ. The awardees will receive 500€ each and a diploma. In 2017 both awards went to ICIQ PhD students: Ruth Dorel and Ignacio Funes.
Dr. Cañellas will receive his award and give a short talk at the official ceremony happening in June at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). The ceremony will also celebrate the work of Michela Milan (University of Girona), co-recipient of the Josep Castells 2018, and Marc Vendrell Escobar (University of Edinburgh), winner of the 2018 Marcial Moreno-Mañas Lectureship.
