Thomas Webster Wins Chinese Academy of Sciences’ 2016 Lee Hsun Lecture Award

Dove Medical Press is thrilled to announce that Dr Thomas Webster, the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Nanomedicine, has won the Chinese Academy of Science’s Lee Hsun Lecture Award 2016.

The Lee Hsun Lecture Award is awarded by the Institute of Metal Research (IMR), Chinese Academy of Sciences. It honours scientists outside of China who have made a significant impact and contribution to the field of materials science and engineering. The award aims to promote academic communication and cooperation between Chinese and international scientists, as well as promoting new subject areas.

The Lee Hsun Lecture Award is named after the former IMR Director Lee Hsun, who discovered hydrogen embrittlement in steels. The award was set up in 2006. Previous recipients include materials science and engineering greats Subra Suresh, Rod Ruoff and Morinobu Endo.

Dr Webster said, "I am honored to be selected for the Chinese Academy of Sciences Lee Hsun lecture award. Without Prof. Lee Hsun's pioneering work correlating the microstructure of metals and cold processing parameters, our work using the same techniques to control nanostructural properties of metals for medical applications would not have been possible. Our work showing that metals with nano-grain sizes can promote tissue growth, inhibit infection and limit inflammation without the use of pharmaceutical drugs is truly an extension of Prof. Lee Hsun's and we are forever grateful."

Thomas Webster will receive the award on 12th December in Sheyang, China, at the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Metals Research.

The International Journal of Nanomedicine is published by Dove Medical Press, publisher of over 100 open access journals in medicine and the sciences.

The International Journal of Nanomedicine is an international, peer-reviewed journal with a focus on the application of nanotechnology in diagnostics, therapeutics, and drug delivery systems throughout the biomedical field. The journal highlights research leading to potential clinical applications in the prevention and treatment of disease. It has an impact factor of 4.320.
