Nobel Prize in Chemistry Won by Honorary Saint

Congratulations to Sir Fraser Stoddart.

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been won by Professor Sir Fraser Stoddart, who was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Science from the University of St Andrews in 2010, alongside Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Ben Feringa for “for the design and synthesis of molecular machines.”

The three men were awarded the most prestigious of awards for creating machines so small that they have applications which can transform the field of medicine. These molecular machines have the potential to apply medicines from within the body, such as by specifically targetting cancer cells. The winners will also share prize money of 8 million Swedish Krona (£744,000).

Sir Fraser was born in Edinburgh in 1942 and educated at Stewart’s Melville College. He went on to study at the University of Edinburgh, where he received a Bsc in Chemistry in 1964 and a Phd in 1966. In 2008, he joined the Chemistry faculty at Northwestern University, Illinois, USA, as a member of the board of trustees, where he remains. He also serves as Director of the Center for Chemistry of Integrated Systems.

Sir Fraser was awarded his honorary doctorate from St Andrews in 2010 “in recognition of his major contributions to Chemistry” alongside the likes of the late Arnold Palmer who received an honorary Doctor of Laws. Sir Fraser has been honoured by many other universities including Trinity College, Dublin, the University of Sheffield and the University of Birmingham. In 2007 he was appointed a Knight Bachelor after having been named in the New Year’s Honours list.

I for one am proud that our University had the foresight to honour this man before the Nobel Committee did, and I am sure we would all like to congratulate him and his colleagues on their ground-breaking research.

  15. I operate a vape store website directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that also offers for sale CBD items. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store website directory. We do not offer CBD goods like CBD oil. We only provide web marketing professional services to CBD firms. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Wellness Retail store and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they sell a surprisingly considerable variety of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is employing twos sets of rules to different companies. Due to this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restricted my payment choices and now, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely not legal and discriminatory as it should be applying a systematic criterion to all companies. I am yet to check with another lawyer from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.

  18. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece Los Angeles celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I have read in Cosmopolitan that the brand was acquired by a UK hedge fund for $50 m. I’ve just bought the Control The Guns Tee from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

This has restrained my payment possibilities and currently, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is completely against the law and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform standard to all companies. I am yet to consult a different legal representative from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
