Professor Kari Dalnoki-Veress of McMaster University, Canada, Associate Editor of EPJ E, has been awarded the 2010 Rutherford Memorial Medal of the Royal Society of Canada for outstanding research in Physics.
Founded in 1882, the Royal Society of Canada is the country's oldest and most prestigious scholarly organization. The Royal Society selection committee addressed Dalnoki-Veress as "a dedicated young scientist with a genius for simple but profound investigation. In a short time he has developed an outstanding international reputation in the area of soft matter physics and biophysics. In an era dominated by large funding initiatives and complex instrumentation, Dalnoki-Veress is an inspired scientist and research supervisor who can find deep insight from brilliant direct experiments."
The award will be presented on November 27 2010 during the Society's Induction and Awards Ceremony in Ottawa. The EPJ E journal team sincerely congratulate Kari of this great achievement.
