Phil Bartlett, Professor of Electrochemistry at the University of Southampton, has been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society, it is announced today.

The Royal Society is the UK’s national academy of science. Founded in 1660, it is dedicated to the promotion of excellence in science and supporting scientific endeavor. Each year the Royal Society awards up to 44 Fellowships to the best scientists in recognition of their scientific achievements, and is one of the highest accolades a scientist can achieve.

Professor Phil Bartlett is distinguished for his pioneering contributions to understanding bioelectrochemistry and the electrodesposition of nanostructured materials. His most recent work focuses on the development of nanostructured surfaces to detect single base changes in DNA for applications in point of care diagnostics, helping to prevent adverse drug reactions, and nanomaterials for next generation electronic devices.

“I am delighted to be elected to the Royal Society,” says Phil. “It’s a great honour and fantastic recognition of research in my group in Southampton.”

Phil is also the co-founder of Nanotecture plc, a spin out company which specialises in the production of nonporous materials and the development of highly efficient electrical storage devices.

Professor Phil Gale, Head of Chemistry comments: “I am delighted that Phil’s outstanding contribution to nanotechnology and sensors has been recognised by the Royal Society.”

“It is fantastic news that Professor Phil Bartlett’s work in the area of electrochemistry has been commended,” adds Professor Stephen Hawkins, Dean of the Faculty of Natural and Environmental Sciences. “This reinforces the high esteem in which chemistry at Southampton is held by the wider community.”
