Dr Claire Martin, Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutics, gave a
presentation at the British Pharmaceutical Conference in
Manchester. Her work received the Conference Analytical Science
Award for a short talk in pharmaceutical analysis.
The award carried with a prize of up to £2,000 to attend a
major conference anywhere in the world.
Dr Martin’s research involved freezing and slowly thawing a

information about the temperature at which it is safe to store
medicines for various illnesses, so they do not begin to break down
and lose effectiveness.
Dr Martin, from the School of Applied Sciences, said: "I was
honoured and pleased to receive the award. I am looking forward to
using the major bursary to attend a future international
conference, possibly in New York."
