The academic in charge of the science faculty at the University of Lincoln has been made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.


Professor Brian McGaw FRSC, Dean of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, has been involved with the work of the Royal Society of Chemistry for the past eight years.


He is honorary secretary to the Analytical Biosciences Group of the Analytical Division and has organised seven major conferences for the society, including one on forensic analysis which attracted 200 delegates to Lincoln last summer.


The fellowship is also recognition of Professor McGaw’s research background – he has published over 100 academic papers in the field of analytical biochemistry.


“The Royal Society of Chemistry is a highly reputable professional body and this award is very important for me personally,” said Professor McGaw.


“The fellowship is recognition both of my contribution to the workings of the society and of the research which I’ve done in this field.”


Professor McGaw joined the University of Lincoln in 2000 from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, where he was a reader in Analytical Biochemistry.


Before that he was head of the Analytical Department at the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen for seven years.
