CIT makes 2018 Class of Charlemont Scholars

CIT makes 2018 Class of Charlemont Scholars

Published on: Thursday, 19 April 2018

Dr Alex Krok (CIT Research Fellow funded by the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Technology Centre) successfully made the 2018 Class and received this prestigious grant from the Royal Irish Academy. Alex is currently researching Powder Modelling for Pharmaceutical Tabletting in conjunction with Dr Sandra Lenihan and Dr Keith Byran.
 
Prof. Kennedy, President of the Royal Irish Academy noted the importance of the awards as they are designed to act as a career springboard by assisting scholars in strengthening their international mobility and developing international collaborative networks. The Charlemont Grants are unique in offering funding for short international research trips, to support primary research in any area. Alex Krok will be fostering a collaboration with researchers from the UK and USA to progress his current research. The University of Surrey - UK and University of Dexrel -USA host Research Centres in the areas of powder processing and modelling, respectively.  This is a fantastic opportunity for CIT and the PMTC.
