Professor Gonçalo Bernardes has been awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry 2024 Corday-Morgan Mid-Career Prize for Chemistry.

The prize is given for his design, development and application of targeted therapeutics, including small molecule-based RNA degradation and conditional activation of chemotherapeutics.

Professor Bernardes’ work is considered to be at the forefront of the interface of chemistry and biology and has led to many breakthroughs in protein chemistry and new chemical methodologies to address difficult questions in life sciences.

Professor Bernardes, a Staff Fellow and Director of Studies in Chemistry at Trinity Hall, said: “This prize recognises an effort in what I hope will generate new scientific knowledge & technology developments to impact on human health. This would not be possible without the talent and hard-work of all of the undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and collaborators that I have worked with, and with the support from my family. I am very grateful to all.”
