LGC’s Jim Huggett receives Times Higher Education Award
13 Dec 2013
Jim Huggett, the Science Leader in Nucleic Acid Metrology at LGC, was part of the group awarded the Times Higher Education Award for “International collaboration of the year” as a result of his previous work with UCL. Jim received the award for his involvement in the ‘Active Detection of Active Tuberculosis (ADAT)’ project.
Jim attended the awards ceremony on Thursday 28 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. On winning the award Jim said: “This award was a very pleasant surprise. ADAT focused on the diagnosis of Tuberculosis in Sub Saharan Africa and its success is a testimony to the hard work of a multinational team including members from Zambia, Tanzania, Germany as well as the UK. It was a privilege to be part of this project which targets this terrible global disease.”
Jim co-wrote and set up ADAT prior to moving to LGC but has maintained close links as an honorary fellow at UCL. LGC is currently working on the diagnosis of Tuberculosis in the Molecular and Cell Biology Group.
