Professor Phil Gale, Head of Chemistry at the University of Southampton, has received a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award for his work in the field of supramolecular chemistry. Jointly funded by the Wolfson Foundation and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award recognises talented scientists of outstanding achievement and potential.

Phil receives the award for his work on small molecule lipid bilayer anion transporters for biological applications. He said: "I'm delighted and honoured to receive this award from the Royal Society and the Wolfson Foundation.  I'd like to thank all the members of my research group past and present for their hard work and dedication which is reflected in this award."

Phil moved to the University of Southampton in 1999 and was promoted to a personal chair in Supramolecular Chemistry in 2007 becoming Head of Chemistry in 2010. He is the third Southampton chemist to achieve this honour in two years, following Professors Jonathan Essex and Malcolm Levitt.
