Assoc. Prof. Tamer Uyar from UNAM-Institute of Materials Science & Nanotechnology received 2016 International Cyclodextrin Jozsef Szejtli Award ( only presented to Young Scientist recognizing outstanding achievements in Cyclodextrin research) (given bi-annually, Dr. Uyar is the 2nd recipient of this award). Prof. Uyar has received this prestigious award (bronze plaquette and a monetary award) from Dr. Lajos Szente from CycloLab at 18th International Cyclodextrin Symposium, Gainesville, FL, USA, 18-21 May, 2016.
Prof. Uyar has received this prestigious award for his pioneering role and outstanding contribution in the field of Cyclodextrin research by carrying out Electrospinning of polymer-free cyclodextrin nanofibers, functional electrospun nanofibers by cyclodextrins and cyclodextrin inclusion complexes. Prof. Uyar has shown that these cyclodextrin-based novel nanofibers have potential applications in healthcare, filtration technology, functional textiles, environmental, food, packaging, agriculture, etc.
