Top awards for academics

First published in

TWO academics at York University have been awarded Philip Leverhulme Prizes by the Leverhulme Trust.

The prizes, with a value of £70,000 each, have been awarded to Dr Jo Applin, in the department of history of art, and Dr Kirsty Penkman, in the department of chemistry.

The prizes are awarded to outstanding scholars who have made a substantial and acknowledged contribution to their particular field of study, which has been recognised at an international level, and where the expectation is that their greatest achievements are yet to come.
