EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future


We are delighted to announce that Professor Lisa Hall, Professor of Analytical Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge and Sensor CDT academic, won the prestigious MRC Millenium Medal. She was recognised for her pioneering work in biosensor design, which led to the spinout company AgaMatrix, which has delivered more than 8 million devices that are helping health services to provide diabetes care.

"Professor Hall has also used synthetic biology techniques to develop new diagnostics and environmentally sustainable local manufacturing techniques that will benefit the NHS and provide beneficial solutions for low and middle-income countries.

The MRC Prize Committee also praised Professor Hall for her dedication to improving the wider research culture and environment, particularly by embedding entrepreneurship into her work, advancing the education of young researchers and ‘being a champion for women in science’."

Prof. Lisa Hall is the academic supervisor of Sensor CDT student Lorena Gordillo Dagalier and co- supervisor of Sensor Champion 2022 Josephine Tumwesige. 

The Sensor CDT congratulates Lisa on this incredible achievement.
