Award for Professor Steve Kelly


BEACON's Professor Steve Kelly has won the prestigious 2016 Schroepfer Medal, which has been awarded by the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS) in recognition of his significant and distinguished accomplishments in the science and technology of oils, fats, surfactants and related material. The award recognises both the achievements and impact of Professor Kelly's long and distinguished career, and the significance and excellence of his team's research.

The Schroepfer award was established to honour the memory of George J. Schroepfer, Jr., a leader in the sterol and lipid field for more than 40 years. The award aims to foster Schroeper's ideals of personal integrity, high scientific standards, perseverance, and a strong spirit of survival, tempered by charm and wit.
