Congratulations to Dr Robert Langer!

The 2008 Millennium Technology Prize winner Dr Robert Langer was awarded the 2015 Queen Elizabeth Prize of Engineering earlier today. He received the prize for his revolutionary advances and leadership in the engineering at the interface with chemistry and medicine.

The international £1 million Queen Elizabeth Prize aims to raise the public profile of engineering and inspire young people to take up the challenges of the future and become engineers. The prize was launched in 2011 to address the need for more engineers and to celebrate the remarkable achievements of today’s engineers. This was the second time the prize was awarded.
