Blizard Institute Announces its first Paper of the Year Winners

In February 2015 an initiative was started in the Blizard Institute to recognise outstanding publications by our researchers. Each month, a shortlist is prepared by Prof David Kelsell, Deputy Director for Research, and Prof Graham Hitman, Institute Director, and sent out for all Blizard Institute staff and students to vote on. The winning publication becomes the Blizard Paper of the Month and at the end of the calendar year these are in turn entered into an open vote for Blizard Paper of the Year.
